Staples: rice and oil, found in every kitchen.
Simply beautiful. Yes, spring is here.
This cart of some sort of vegetables is left out to dry in the hutong (alleys). The photo’s rather shadowed and can be part of this week’s Challenge: Shadowed .

Just at a market in Beijing. Simple eggs with the sun shining on them.
I love how the Chinese cook vegetables. Often there’s a delectable sauce involved, but this is just spinach cooked in chicken broth with garlic and some pork.
Not so tasty. Mochi is just not my cup of tea.
Mid-Autumn Festival in China means mooncakes, exchanged and eaten or regifted. I got a couple from my school. Since I learned they’re 1000 calories, more or less, I’ve given mine away to the homeless. Above there are gift bags full of sets of mooncakes.
Not a food I like, but many folks I know love shrimp. I think they’re hideous, but in the summer, for those who like them, I bet they’re refreshing.
