Weekends are often time spent gallivanting around town or in Shanghai, bumming it on the couch, or spending time with our friends and family. At times the hankering for a little bit of home, “USA“, hits us all a bit hard. Living in this rural community with not many western amenities to pick from forces us to be a little creative.
There is no better way of quenching those lonely feelings than by spending the day with friends. So, while others were in Shanghai, we got together for a hoedown bar-b-que. Imagine my shock when I was told we were having this shindig using a charcoal grill. Wow! Real charcoal in China, hot damn, I was excited!
The guys setup the bar-b-que spot on the lawn of the park. As you can imagine we got many stares and onlookers. I got the impression that bar-b-ques on the park lawn’s is not a common thing around these parts.
I’ve added, “grilling”, to my long list of appreciations. A list of things we take for granted in the USA. Enjoy!
