Ice Cream Coffee

Iced Coffee #China style!  Here in Henan, most restaurants don’t have ice.  The Chinese don’t really like iced drinks – believing the cold unboiled water will make them sick and is a bad combination with your inside organs. (Probably true of the water here.) 

But Ice Cream is a different story.  Still bad for your health but not so likely to kill you.  So if you Order iced coffee or an iced soda You’ll get Ice cream coffee or a ice cream float πŸ˜„

#Foodie Favorite

Ooh. . . . Seaweed Chips!  πŸ˜‚ The perfect junk food.  They have the weirdest Types of chips here – no BBQ or Chedder Sour Cream.  Nope, It’s Seaweed, Green Tea, Squid, Roasted Lamb, Hot Pot, and Yoghurt

The Chinese #Dream

​The Art students at my university are allowed to paint random building walls here on campus to show off their skills.  This one is dedicate to tee Chinese president – lots of support and nationalism here!

#Island Drink!

#blueraspberry and #orange #fruit drink!  Tastes like blue #popsicles 😜  Puts me in the #island mood! A good thing since it’s freezing

#Rose Tea – The #Herbs of China

However despite my mistaken belief that they loved #EnglishTea , I have since learned that the actually prefer #herbal teas.  This box for sal at the local supermarket is full of #roses for #rosetea. They also like #lavender tea, #chamomile, #jasmine, and others.  Makes the #cafe very fragrant!

Chinese #IceCream – You can have mine :p

​

The #Chinese concept of #icecream and my idea of a delicious treat are not the same πŸ˜‚ This was a Chinese popsicle my student likes – green tea with a red bean filling.  Somehow not quite the same as good old fashioned Chocolate 😜

The Other Mother – #Huawei


Haha! πŸ˜‚ I Love my #huawei Chinese phone. It has the best #English descriptions for things sometimes. Apparently our #Weather is ‘dreary and very unhealthy’ – you know, life just sucks sometimes 😜 I just got a Warning from the phone for Tuesday when it’ll get down to 21degrees!!! – so cold they asked me to check my ‘mouth muffler, ear mufflers, and gloves. πŸ˜‚ It’s like Having a second mom. 😝
