Back from Travelling

by katerina on October 2, 2007

I have returned safe and sound. Although I am suffering from minor jet lag, a bit of a tummy bug and a minor desire not to work I have returned to my regular life.
I don’t have time at the moment for a full report but here is the quick version of Shanghai. In my experience it is the only place to eat Snake, Turtle and Abalone, drink Snake’s blood and have your boss treat you to a foot massage. I wasn’t a huge fan of the snake blood but snake itself was fantastic. Also in general the food was really good and it was not all quite so scary. It was also much more natural then I expected – less msg and additives if any. The city itself was always awake and buzzing. There was a really good energy and feeling of safety. Though holey god was it hot!

I also got the opportunity to try the hairy crab delicacy. I thought it was good but maybe not as good as the hype. I still think Dungeness is the way to go.
