Let's eat!

I had a long informative chat with two Chinese women at the India China Institute today about what to expect in Yunnan. I learned about dances and horse-rides and buses and performances but the conversation kept coming back to food. Yunnan is famous for rice noodles, I learned. And mushrooms of many kinds. Something called "stinky tofu" (above, picture source) is famous. They eat all kinds of flowers, and, one added, "worms." While I was figuring out she meant grubs and larvae, she effused that the marvelous biodiversity of Yunnan means they have a wide profusion of them to eat. I think I might pass.
