I’m home and miss the breakfast gruel porridge already: rice, hot soy milk, and sweet potato.  The island I visited was Taiwan, and breakfast was sometimes steamed buns filled with pork and served with fresh soy milk, or it was traditional Chinese fare (that is to say, not so different from lunch or dinner) and fresh soy milk.

More posts are coming, with pictures, but I just wanted to tell you right now that porridge for breakfast is apparently global.


One thought on “Home

  1. Remember that in China (including “autonomous” regions such as Taiwan) what should be sweet will be salty and what should be salty, sweet. My insect collecting in China was curtailed by a very astute housekeeper who thought the large aggregate of flies and beetles had died and fell into a collecting bag and therefore placed them in the trash. Looking forward to more pics!
