Day 5 - Lunch

One of the cool things with a local guide is that the lunch plans are made for us.  We get escorted to some quaint establishment, and helped along with the menu/translations.  This little place is packed with locals and the atmosphere is buzzing, promising signs that the food is great.

Whilst waiting for the food to arrive, the youngster treks out to the water feature in the entry.  It is filled with goldfish, and a couple of turtles.  I smile politely when looking at the photos, hoping that no one is going to ask for the turtle to be plucked out of the pond and on to their plate!

As I glance at the table across from us, I seen the cutest little tree that was sitting on the edge of the plate. 

Our use of chopsticks is something that needs a little more practice, but we are giving it a go.


With lunch devoured, it is time to roll out of the resturant in search of the Summer Palace.
