back home again, there is still a stack of photos from china i would like to share with you. these are from nanjing again, showing a food stall selling shao mai, the typical chinese dumplings. when you are not too picky about the settings, those small shops can offer excellent food and a pleasure for the eyes as well. having learned only two words of mandarin in the last week, i was still able to by my food and/or ask for permission to take pictures. wandering in the streets was an experience i wouldn’t have wanted to miss. of course the card of the hotel was like an insurance for getting back by taxi as a fallback, but even bus drivers speaking as much english as i do speak chinese were very supportive and helped me find my way.
