Down by the White Swan there are many restaurants. This one shows its food in the window.
In the evening many people come out for entertainment. (I have pointed this out to my children several times!) Often they play badminton, but these middle aged gentlemen were playing hackey sack.
Next to our hotel, the Victory, is a 7-11 where we buy our drinks. A can of soft drink in the hotel is 26 RMB. (Over $3) A bottle of soft drink at 7-11 is 3-4 RMB. (Under $1) You do the math.
The other day I went over to get drinks and saw this on the sidewalk next to the 7-11.
Buckets of crabs and shell fish. If you look closely you can see that the crabs claws are tied shut with thick husks or rope.
A bucket of...? I am guessing eels since the rest are sea foods? It does look a lot like that one dish on the cruise.
The 7-11 right next door. It turns out that there is a restaurant next door and the seafood was outside the restaurant. Maybe you can pick your own dinner.
A bunch of bikes lined up by the 7-11.
