Just went out for a walk, had lunch/dinner, and bought some water and cookies from Carrefour (which is a French owned Hypermart here, I call it a Hypermart cuz it has loud music, signs everywhere, it's like Ralph's plus Target plus Bestbuy all rolled into one and throw in some Chinese chaotic-ness and loud-ness)...
Three buck meal at Chinese equivalent of McDonald's -- it's a Taiwanese chain and they are even selling shaved ice!
Lotus flower bulb (?) sellers in the rain... life is pretty hard for some people. I guess this is the season before the Lotus flowers bloom. I saw several vendors selling the flower bulb -- there is some type of seed inside (the size of pistacchio) and they would pry it out and eat it.
Ahhh... Carrefour. It's really more of a French Costco/Walmart than anything else. -J
I love lotus seed! Try some yourself, they are good!
They look kind of strange and unfamiliar... maybe I'll try one!
