weekend outing

last saturday, we decided to explore our local area a little by going to an area that seemed to be more busy and had more shops. i guess it ended up being more of a food outing for us, as that's all we ended up purchasing. but that is not so unusual for our family. =)
we got to experience the extremes of eating out in china...

first, going to a street cart that sells lots of food-on-a-stick, which they cook for you on the spot and slather with yummy sauce. we have been told you have to be careful not to get sick when getting food off of street carts, but it looked so good, we couldn't resist. and none of us (thankfully) got sick either. =)

then, we decided to go for some hard-to-come-by western food. amusingly, pizza hut is a fancy ordeal around these parts and hannah enjoyed finally going somewhere that had high chairs. we soaked up the pristine surroundings and the waitresses wearing witch hats for halloween.

finally, we topped it off with a cup of mango juice from the local milk tea stand. good stuff... hannah definitely agrees.

now i'm getting hungry...

oh man...how we miss the food on the streets of china. don't worry...we never got sick. hey, if they can eat it all of their lives, we'll be fine, right? anyway, beware of food on a stick in china...we came across many scorpions and other skewered critters...
