Zhengzhou (郑州)

Grand Shanghai City Mall (大上海城). We ate dinner at the Golden Hans place in the upper right. It was pretty good, but more importantly they brewed their own beer on site, which is not a common in China. I tried all three varieties, a typical barley brewed one (大麦), a wheat (小麦) and a stout (黑啤酒), and then I went for seconds on the stout since they were only 6元 a pint (that's less then $1).

Giant bottle of Makers in Grand Shanghai City.

27' Pagoda (二七塔); a tower to commemorate the 1927 workers uprising in Shanghai against the feudal lords now sits in the center of one of Zhengzhou's largest shopping centers.


Dried meat at the super market.

Bus station waiting to go to Shaolin Temple.

Hui noodles (烩面), a Zhengzhou specialty; its got mutton in it.

Reginal boazi (包子)

These last few are all from Zhengzhou University (郑州大学)

I love you… ice cream

Had a long weekend because of Tomb Sweeping Day (清明节), so I went down to Zhengzhou with some friends to get out of Linfen for a few days.
