I came over to Dylan's after the phone call with Chris and told him I needed to rest and recuperate. I was wanting to spend time on the internet so I could download a couple of books and write a blog and catch up with friends on FB. Instead I lay down on his bed and fell asleep for almost 4 hours. I think what happened is that jet lag finally caught up with me. I did the same thing after about three days in Paris. I felt MUCH better and much less tearful when I woke up.
|Yes, m&m's! and Hershey's kisses and Dove Chocolate|
I was fascinated to see some things straight off American food store shelves, especially nuts from
|Cheetoes, Lay's chips, etc.|
|Oreos of many flavors. Dylan said they're pretty terrible.|
I saw some peaches or nectarines which had Chinese writing on them. It looks like some sort of sticker had been put on them when they were growing, then the lack of sun on that area caused them to turn a different color than the surrounding area so the image stood out though there was no sticker on it anymore. It seemed like a lot of work for a single piece of fruit.
|chicken feet, anyone?|
|I was tempted to get one of these just to explore and try to figure out how to open it, how to eat it, etc., but we didn't... I still wonder what it's like.|
|These cherries, in their beautiful little baskets, were 120 Yuan or about $20. Honest to goodness!|
|I've seen these for sale in the US but have no clue what they're called or what to do with them either.|
|Some of their bakery treats. Dylan says they're not very sweet or chewy or satisfying compare to American deserts.|
|These look like American cereals, but apparently don't taste like them.|
|what I was drawing. Many people stopped there to have their pictures taken because the blooming trees were so beautiful.|
|one of Dylan's favorite stores - Happy Lemon - where they serve milk tea.|
In the evening, Dylan went to play Magic (a card game), with a friend, leaving me delightedly nhis commuter where I oiled access facebook and email with ease. The day was a lovely dose of ease in the midst of the stress of the unknown.
