It can be pretty late by the time class ends and I get Tovina all together and ready to head back to the hotel but I still need to find some dinner. There is a McDonald's across the road, but generally I try to find something better. One of the tough things can be Tovina's exhaustion level - she is often pretty tired by 7pm (at home she is usually in bed by 7:30.) She wanted to be carried and cried when I tried to put her in her stroller - not that you can tell from this photo :)
Here is what I ended up eating, a soup made from ingredients I chose. I picked mushrooms, noodles, tofu, spinach, some other green leafy thing, and bean sprouts. It cost 5.5 rmb (80 cents) and was pretty good. Tovina also liked hanging out with the people in the store front so that was an added bonus.
I tried to wash down dinner with this sour plum soda which I had hoped would taste like Dr Pepper.
I was wrong.
