I'm a 95 lb stick- 102 on a good day (after a buffet), but I love food like no other. I spend about 3 months of the year in Asia. When I'm not in Asia scouring the streets for good food, I'm checking out the best places to eat in L.A.. Do street vendors or C ratings from restaurants scare me? Course not-cause the best food is cheap, made and sold on the street, & cooked by someone who hasn't washed their hands in ages...Delicious!

頤和園 Adventure Part 1
This is me at the the tourist site known as the Summer Palace or Yíhé Yuán; literally "Gardens of Nurtured Harmony." It's where the Empress & Emperors used to go on vacation.
I was kinda hoping for a more fierce looking Qinlin to be guarding the Summer Palace. This one looked really skinny and wimpy.
Now this QInlin looks like it can do some major protecting.
After hours of walking, the meal of the day was Xibei food aka Mongolian.
A picture of the girl that was probably making my food.
Some veggie dishes
Little dumpling things you dipped in your soup.
Lamb, fungus, & Mongolian hard bread. I've been really lazy uploading pictures since the weather here has been really bad. Part 2 to come.
