Once we got ourselves introduced we were invited to the banquet or 宴会. This was a bountiful feast where dishes seemed to be endless. All in all we had about thirty different dishes, ranging from, fish to pork and everything in between, each dish different than the last. To my surprise it wasn’t just the taste that had me excited, but also the presentation. There were two dishes in particular, a fish dish and a fried chicken dish that they had basically given you the whole thing. I did my best as an amateur photographer to capture the inner beauty of the animal. I will leave it up to the readers to decide how I did.
There was one other dish I was skeptical of trying, but I found it to be not too bad, pig intestines. Now, I think I can safely say I’m not a picky eater if I venture that deep into a pig.
