Spicy frog soup, my first outing, and other new things

Well, my second day here I jumped right into things and ate spicy frog soup. Since then I have had tea leaf jello, numerous types of seafood, duck, maybe pork, beef, and a poor chicken that I saw living only hours before it was on my plate. I have tried many types of exotic fruits (see other post).

Yesterday I left the apartment alone for the first time since being here. It was a great, and really hot/humid, feeling. I walked to the market, about half a mile from the apartment, and awarded myself with some skittles and a Chinese candy I dared to try.

Consensus: the purple skittles are black currant, and the sinky candy is good. They are little star-shaped cookies that taste like blueberry pie. Very good. Today I bought a candy at the friendship store (a big store filled with a bunch of different departments, not unlike a western ‘department store’)

Sour strawberry candy: very good also! Found an interesting type of gum for my brother too, but not telling anymore just in case he reads this post!
