Saturday’s Outing…

It’s Saturday! I LOVE Saturday’s especially when David is off. He works tonight but is off during the day time and we ALWAYS have so much fun!!!

Today we went to one of our favorite markets( we have a few) I wanted to pick up a few particular things which I got BUT the fun began when we started sampling some DIFFERENT things…things we might not normally try. And hey, I’m adventurous when it comes to food and I find the more we dine with Chinese friends, my boldness grows! I haven’t been sick yet and I think most things are really delicious!

So today at the market was Sample Saturday for us and lots of Chinese people…

So we sampled Tea…

And more tea…

Green stuff…seaweed

Honey…the raw stuff


and smoked meats…pigs face anyone?

Sea cucumber…ok this one we still DID NOT try! I will before we leave China for good.

Nut and seed treat…It’s like eating bird food ONLY better!

And…dried noodles, bean curd, mushroom…various things…I’m not sure!

This stuff was so good! The lady cooking even showed me all the ingredients she was using to make the different dishes. I would love to take a cooking class from her, she was great!

So much fun and we even made a few purchases!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
