It was great being in Pingyao, China today because not only is it spectacularly beautiful:
But I am also quite famous!
All my fans want to have their picture with me!
The food’s tempting too. I briefly consider ordering the Manual cat ears but finally decided that I’m more of an Automatic cat ears sort of lady.
HOB suggested we order Cold wrist Joe, but all the Joes in my life have Hot wrists.
Instead, we walked outside of the town and found a bunch of people huddled around a woman dispensing soup in to plastic bags wrapped around bowls. We ordered two and ate them from tiny picnic tables along with curious kids. The soup was tasty: a gelatinous savory broth with soft tofu stirred in, topped with a pesto-like puree and peanuts.
Looking forward to another full day in Pingyao tomorrow, looking at Ming dynasty temples. And maybe we’ll go back and try the Manual cat ears.
