An American Vegetarian in China

So, I was a vegetarian for 11 years. I’ve been eating chicken for two years now and over the last few months have introduced a little more meat into my diet to prepare for China. I’m sorry to say, after tonight, I may revert back to vegetarianism.

I tried duck and some unidentifiable dishes. I was more adventurous with food then I ever have been. I only made it through appetizers before I had to quit. Ugh, I tried! Really it was just too greasy. The little duck I tasted reminded me of eel. Not bad, but not something I could eat in quantity.

Tomorrow we’re off to the great wall.

We're not twenty-something backpackers taking a trek around the world (anymore). We work full time and spend every spare dollar and minute on our wanderlust. We live to travel. Exploring new cultures, meeting people from around the world, sharing food, drink and music—all this reminds us that we are one tribe. We write how-to tips to help you have a smooth journey as well as our inner thoughts on new places we explore. Let us know what you think!
