I learned some lessons on Chinese culture, and history, and got to see some of the most beautiful parts of the country. I regret that I didn't get the opportunity to try some more of the exotic foods. Bert and I missed out on the outing to the street market where some people got to try dog, scorpions, snake, lotus, and frog. I did get to try some sort of mini crab, on a stick, where you ate the whole thing in one bite, and duck tongue, duck head, and chicken feet. All of which I was unimpressed with, not much meat on a chickens foot. :) Although I did enjoy the foods I did get to eat. I love the spicy stuff, and there was plenty of that to be had, even though I didn't always know what it was I was eating.
