Culinary delights

One thing about living here in China, is that there is lots of great food to eat. I have had the pleasure of eating some weird and wonderful and some weird and not some wonderful food here.
Two things which originally kept me here in the first place was the variety of food, and the other was the people. They are a great bunch of people.
Whilst being here, I have managed to live in two places for some time, and one thing I have noticed, is that there is very little spring time.

Wuhan, which is in the centre of China, has a really long spring time. Not. It's like over in about 3 days.
A very short time indeed.

Beijing though, has a longer spring season.... ohh maybe some 2 weeks.

Spring time here though (Beijing) though brings out little bugs, they are kind of like Miggies but meatier. Yes, Meatier.

How on earth would I know that they are meatier, well, there is only one way to find out and that is to eat them.

You go up to top of your local mountain, preferably on a MTB, and you try as hard as you can, to come down the side as fast as you can. Of course, you need to gulp for air, and at the same time, you gulp these little buggers.
Either that, or you can grit your teeth, and end up with little black dots all over them. Still, you will have to remove them, and you'd probably do that with either your lips or tongue.
That being the case, I'd rather they just hit the back of throat, give me a quick type of involuntary Vurp (bit of vomit and burp in the same instance) and carry on with it.
As I said though, it's only a short time, so just might as well accept it.

  1. Those miggies might be better lightly fried with some chilli and soy
