Thankfully, JiangCheng's one remaining English teacher(!), Ruth, has been really hospitable and insisted that Ava and I join in all her family meals (being Spring Festival, nearly all the restaurants are closed and there's only so long you can survive on instant noodles and fruit!). Ruth's daughter was a toddler when I was living here, and now is a cute and confident young lady [see photo]. Our meals with Ruth's family have been "interesting" to say the least. Bee larvae [top left], wild cat [bottom left] and, as yet uncooked, turtle!
