I love Skype. I chatted with my friend Jonathon this afternoon over the Skype-line about how he's finding being in Bejing after many years. He's there this week for to speak at an environmental conference. Naturally China's changed since he was a student, and yet it can still be counted on for some surprising food adventures! Jonathon described walking along Wang Feng Shi Boulevard in Bejing's commercial district and happening on the scene above. Yes, these are live scorpions on a stick, squirming and waiting to be fried in the hot oil fryers to the left, and be bought as street food by the crowds passing by. Jonathon gave me permission to use the photo he snapped and sent me above.
