Icecream

2015-06-03 13.15.31

Fortune cookies are unknown in China. In fact, you don’t always get desserts on the menu in restaurants. But when you slide open the door in an ice-cream chest you see a really large number of colourful packets. They are pretty exotic, I haven’t always figured out which flavour I’ve eaten. The Family has more experience in these matters, but she hasn’t always figured it out either. That didn’t keep us from trying them out again and again, especially since Beijing seems to have slid into summer a little early. I guess part of the fun is that we can’t read the wrappers.

Can anyone help with the wrappers in the photo?

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.

  1. Be careful!! I’m pretty sure one of them says “Scorpion Juice” and another says “Flavor of Old Socks”, but my Chinese is admittedly a little weak…
