On my parents’ last night in Yantai, I took them to the New Hut Place for dinner. This is a local restaurant, famous for being exactly halfway between Zorro’s house and mine, that passes the Tupperware Rule (Tupperware Rule: If there are dirty Tupperwares full of sealife from the Protazonic Era, I’m not eating inside). You sit on bamboo benches and a screen separates each group from the other diners. I guess I’ve been here too long — I think it’s a great place but I don’t have any pictures.
There isn’t any English or pinyin or pictures on the menu, so I totally impressed my folks with my Chinese ordering skills! Little do they know that Zorro and I eat there about once a week and we always order the same thing! Haha!
This morning, we went to the Yantai Airport so they could get on a really early flight to Beijing and then home to New Jersey. I’ll see my folks again at Christmas, but I was still sad to say goodbye.
But at least now I can drink from the bottle and put it back in the fridge again.
