Old Luxu

Being back in Canada is nice. It's our normal and yet, there are so many times when we say "In China we'd do it like this...." and it makes us feel a little home-sick... 
So tonight I was flipping through a couple of shots of Old Luxu (Looshoo... Our town, like many in the west, has an old section and a new section) and I thought they'd be fun to share... 


So you know candy-apples, right? Well these are candy-hawthorn berries! They are very, very tart, and have seeds similar to apple seeds, but paired with the sweet candy coating they're delicious! And cheap too!! ($0.40 a stick) 


Cotton candy is the same as home... 


But again, SO CHEAP! $1 for this huge serving. 


Chemical dogs  I mean, hot dogs, but it's best for your system to take a pass... 



Potty-training, Chinese style! They literally encourage their children to "go" (number 1 or 2!!!!) anywhere they want so you really have to watch where you step on the sidewalks... 



But never fear!! The trusty street cleaners with their custom brooms (made from weeds) will come by and clean it up eventually!! 



I don't miss this.. I noticed how driving in China affected me when I came back here and drove through an intersection.. In a China it's just pure paranoia 100% of the time - especially in intersections, and not a trip on the scooter goes by without someone cutting us off or not stopping at a stop sign, or swerving into on-coming traffic (and directly towards us) and its affected how I drive! 

For now, we are enjoying all of our favorite foods, driving in safe conditions, and spending time with family and friends. 
Bye for now!
