the locals sure know their sizzling prawns -

first night in town, we hit a local sichuan hot spot for food.

my favorite part was when they dumped the prawns on the cast iron skillet, but first pantomimed holding up our napkins to shield us from the steam and splatter effect.

at first i thought we were in for some no theatre, but no, just food.

which was sooooo good.

here's the obligatory tourista shot. see, mom? we ate foreign food!
just like they do in the movies, or on jewish holidays.

then wandered the streets and took in the night.

Sounds like you're having a great time. Don't forget to buy me a really expensive souvenir.
