More Meat

There are a lot of bicycles in China and people transport the strangest things. We saw some old guy carrying long rebars with one end on his bike and the other end on a two-wheeled cart; it looked very difficult to maneuver through the heavy Chengdu traffic.

More meat being carried on a bicycle. There must have been 3-4 slaughtered pigs on the back. The photo isn't too clear but you get the idea.

The office manager was sick yesterday so no lunch was ordered. Four of us ended up going to a hole-in-the-wall dumpling place that only had 8 tables. They had about 14 types of dumplings listed on their menu and prices were 2-3 RMB for 8 dumplings. In the US, 8 dumplings would probably cost you $5 or ~37 RMB. They were a bit on the small side but pretty good.

The "kitchen" at the back of the restaurant. There was one guy making dumpling and a girl (daughter?) waiting on tables.

Menu with English description. The English was actually pretty decent except for the "cow meat" and "pig meat" and item #6: Unwearied effort however cow meat stuffing... absolutely no idea what that means.
