Orange Continent and New Eating Experiences

Day 42

Saturday July 30, 2011

Today, we headed to Orange Continent, which is an appropriate name considering how many orange trees there are. What was even more astonishing was the giant sculpture of Chairman Mao there. The highlight of my day, however, was lunch. We ate at a well-known restaurant and since I couldn’t read the menu (all in Chinese), Lìjié ordered for me. The three dishes that stood out to me today were: chicken’s foot, pig’s foot, and pig’s blood – all unique in flavor. I feel that food is the best way to experience a country; you will never get the same type of food anywhere else in the world. Food makes each country truly unique.
