A Different Sort of Supermarket

So, if you go up to Irving you  find several supermarkets that are different from the supermarkets I am used to. They are Chinese. You cannot recognize about 50% of the stuff that is on sale. Racks of dried stuff, racks of jars, weird vegetables, none of which I have ever come across before. Basically you are in a foreign country. It is wonderful to walk off the street and find yourself in Heifei. Fish in tanks, frogs, live cray fish, meat cut up in unknown chunks. Yet the marketing is purely US – “Big Sale”, “Two for one!”, “Today’s Special.”

Catfish. Do they dread the future?

Shells and crayfish

Tea

Want some rice?
