Tidbits

I went to a Hong Kong style restaurant in downtown Shanghai today. (I ended up seeing a dedicated dumpling place while walking back to the metro station, so I'll either go to that one, or the one Mou Li recommended, or perhaps some other random one later. But anyway, there are dumplings in my immediate future.)

I very carefully avoided the menu item whose English translation was "Speculation Shrimp".

Also, the best exchange of the day went as follows:

Random Chinese Guy: "Where are you from?"

Me: "Los Angeles"

Random Guy: "Oh, France... [pause] Are you an artist?"
