Here's the underground passageways that were used instead of crosswalks.
A Market. Maybe with tradition Chinese food and some souvenirs.
I'd heard from my students and other people that they sold weird things at markets in China like cockroaches and various insects and monkey brains. I thought that they were rumors and just couldn't be true.
Little did I know...
Live scorpions on a stick. They were moving around and being horrible looking.
They were on sticks next to seahorses on a stick.
Directly underneath them was dog and snake meat on a stick.
And silk worm cocoons.
Larger scorpions on a stick next to millipedes next to cockroaches next to starfish.
Oh wait, they were next to a skinned frog.
People actually eat tarantulas which is horrifying!
It was like a horror movie.
As you can see here, he bought a millipede.
He also bought 3 scorpions on a stick and I ate one of them...And Anna ate one of them...
Here are some aliens
Lenny also bought a starfish, which I tried.
The scorpion wasn't too bad. The starfish was disgusting. It was extremely crunchy and tasted awful. Anna wasn't brave enough to try the starfish.
I found milk tea in China, which was also in Japan and it's wonderful. They don't have it in Korea, which is good because I would then drink it every day, which would be a problem.
I bought a milk tea that day and then, while sleeping and Anna was still awake, talked in my sleep.
I said, and I quote, "One day I drank milk tea."
Apparently, I'm a little obsessed with milk tea. Or I was planning my blog in my sleep and how I would discuss how amazing milk tea is.
