From the ordinary to the extraordinary, let me show you something about my latest trip to Veracruz, Mexico in late January and early February.

That’s right, just as you read it, bean ice cream bar. I bought one thinking the inside would be chocolate but it happened to be beans. It is not the first time I found them in what for me are odd places to be eaten. I couldn’t finish it. Here is the image. Click on it to enlarge. [singlepic id=2 w=320 h=240 float=]
The day I arrived to Changle, my room wasn’t ready yet, so I was taken to a nice hotel. Once there I was invited to dinner. Good! Finally, authentic Chinese food! The group was formed by my boss, always referred as “the headmaster”, Eunice, who is the headmaster’ assistant and English interpreter, and Mr. Jong, the driver. The waitress gave me the menu, and of course, I only understood the numbers; the rest was Chinese characters. Given the circumstances, I had
