Goat to town
Ava, JD and I are in HuiZe (pronounced Hway-tzer) for a few days, with two families whose sons are classmates of JD's. HuiZe is about 200km from Kunming, which should be a 2-3 hour drive, but took us over 4 hours yesterday due to frequent tailbacks from accidents on the freeway. It's the hometown of the Sun family, so they are showing us the sights. Today we visited this huge coin in the main square. It's just visible in the the photo above [centre, right] and looms tall once you get close to it. It's there because HuiZe had a famous coin mint a few hundred years ago.
The town is famous for its goat meat, so we are expecting a goat hotpot this evening, hopefully not too spicy!
