Chinatown

Visited Chinatown, had a look at the temple, Stu got himself a Chinese name, bought some souvenirs, drank fresh fruit juice from a market stall, dined at a Szechuan restaurant, Stu tried frog's legs for the very first time- all that in a day's work. I love playing tourist, even in my own country.

Have you visited your chinatown?

I am actually working in chinatown in Bangkok. It looks chinese by the chinese letters on the buildings, not the buildings.

Have fun anywhere!

Hi there!
Thank you for commenting on my blog:)
LOVE chinatown - sounds like you had a really fun day, not sure about those frog legs though!

We have a tiny china town close by. I'll have to investigate! I tried frog legs in Mexico once... deep fried :o). Thanks for the inspiration. I feel a weekend excursion coming on!

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments...it means so much to me!
Lyndseywiley: Deep fried frog legs...would love to try that someday. For the rest of you who haven't tried, frog's legs tastes like a cross between fish and chicken. :)
