Yes, I'm in China with Mr. CAM. Internet connection about to time-out. Will do a food report from Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghjou (sp) when I get some time. Schedule has been almost completely full. Amazing country this... quite a bit different from what I expected.

Wow! What a trip! Make sure you drop in on Qin Shi Huang; anybody who conscripts 720,000 men to build his grave is sure to leave a pretty impressive spectacle.

Yes, indeed, the Terra Cotta Warriors are spectacular... unfortunately not much time to write to llizard's forum... Internet time severely constrained by pretty hectic meeting schedule. More later about the food of the Xian and Shangzhou area -- different from what I expected. Less centred on rice than I expected, and more wheat and corn. Now in wealthy Singapore, a "fine" city as onw speaker said, "in every sense of the word."
