begger’s chicken and snails

We eat this whole chicken wrapped in a lotus leaf and baked in clay called Begger’s chicken. It’s like a super tender roasted chicken. And they bring us little snails in the shell, which we pick out with our chopsticks.

Dr. Wang buys us this cornbread-type cake with green raisins from a street vendor. And after dinner, Andrew and I get this delicious stir fry.
