Everyone's favorite Cantonese delight... "Fried Jew's-ear with celery!" (Will says that the characters actually describe some sort of mushroom dish, but I am reluctant to believe him).
What else should I tell you about our evening in Guangzhou?
Well, we met this little guy—lets just call him my new best friend— who was running around the establishment eating pieces of pineapple and being generally adorable in his sweater which had little pooh-bear ears attached to the hood. Important life question: how does one say 'meep' in Chinese?
Our dinner on night 3 in Guangzhou, which was delicious and did not consist of jew ear. We also successfully ordered broccoli, huzzah!
As we enjoyed our dinner on the outdoor patio, these pretty pink flowers fell every so often from a tree above us.
It wasn't quite dinner by candlelight, but dinner by lantern-light was pretty awesome. (Photo of the red lanterns by one Will Price).
Tomorrow we're headed to Taishan to look for Will's roots here in China. A quick google search lets us know that they speak not Mandarin, not Cantonese but "Taishanese" in this region. Pray for us.
