Food, Glorious Food











When 1.3 billion people reside in a country, food is a constant concern.Visiting numerous major cities throughout China, there certainly was no lack of food anywhere we traveled. Street vendors and restaurants saturate every available inch of space with foods on display, cooking devices, chairs and tables. The gatherings are informal and friendly. Local people assemble for a quick bite before work, lunch and dinner. Farmers who make deliveries into the cities" eat on the go." Many families in the countryside are not equipt to prepare home cooked meals. Workers in the cities don't have the leisure to arrive home early to prepare dinners for their famliy. Some apartments are so small, there is no kitchen..........hence, a plethora of food and eating establishments everywhere. I guess it all depends on what you are hungry for........

How strange - and interesting, to imagine a life without a kitchen.
Learning about other cultures, (and not the politcized bit) is so fascinating!

Lydia~ Always so good to hear from you!

K&S~There is no shortage of food the places i visited-eveything centralizes around food.

Simona~It is an incredible sight to see, but it is a way of life for many people.I think the rich are really rich and the poor are really poor-you have it or you don't!

Barbara~ My NZ find! So good to hear from you. I hope I don't go over-board with this series.

Katiez~Many times too much of the bad is politicized- I certainly could elaborate on that...when I visit you in France!

I've never been to China, but a few years ago I did a wonderful food travel in Laos.

Last week I unexpectedly food travelled in Norway, where I live.
