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.
