Old Friends New Foods

Over the weekend a friend and I met up with some old friends from Down Under here in China. It was good to catch up and see how they've been doing ... and for their buddies in Australia, they're doing really well. I was so happy to see how much they've grown in various ways through their time here.

I've been enjoying the food here a bit too much. I started going to the gym the past couple of days in order to go back to "normal" size before heading back home =P

A fun dish we had over the weekend was a "shish-kebab" meal that came with the most flavor-ful spices. And a favorite of mine here in China is their "gobaro" which is like "tangsuyook", but a lot stronger in the "sweet-n-sour" department and a lot meatier too.

I can now add China to the countries where I enjoy every meal. So far it's been Italy and Thailand (and I'm pretty sure I can put Greece in that list, but I haven't been there yet!). I'm usually not a big food fan ... I'm more of a "eat-to-live" more than a "live-to-eat" kind of guy, but when I'm in these countries, I can't wait till the next meal =P

Take care all and please continue sending prayers this way. It's going to be a full weekend with some great activities planned with the kids and students in this area.
