Postcards from China


I swear I’m still alive. Plenty of mosquito bites but no food poisoning yet (knock on wood). Recently got back from a weekend trip from Shanghai and am now back in Gulangyu.

Unfortunately the house I’m staying at on Gulangyu has absolutely no internet access. On the bright side, the island has a bunch of cutesy coffee shops with internet access — but there’s only so much coffee I can buy.

Food reporting is still coming in though — however slowly. I’ve started writing a series of Chinese food posts from China on Fork in the Road called Postcards from China.”

Dishes covered so far: Chinese bayberry, Xiamen oyster pancakes and Shanghainese xiaolong bao (for tomorrow).
