Capitulo 3...en...China is different///Chapter 3...in... China is different



Esta semana en "China is different. Cap 3".....
"El Te"
En China se bebe te a todas horas y en todos los sitios...algo impresionante. Cada uno se lleva una taza y su propio te (te verde o de jazmin son los favoritos) a todas partes. Se sirve agua hirviendo (gratis) en todos los hoteles, trenes, estaciones de tren, restaurantes....Y en nuestro animo de querer ser uno mas en este pais lleno de sorpresas fuimos al mercado a comprar el ultimo modelo en tazas (por favor observad el motivo esparrago-pimiento verde y rojo///y pececitos en el mar) y nuestra bolsita de te.....y tan agusto!

This week on "China is Different. Ch. 3"

Tea in China
Tea is the national past time. You drink it day and night and no matter where or what you are doing. Everyone takes a tea cup (>500ml) or a thermo full of their favourite tea with them at all times of the day. They fill the cup full of tea and then continually fill it with boiling water all day.

You find boiling water everywhere; hotels, train and bus stations, restaurants etc. To blend with the locals we brought a couple of tea cups. I think we look more Chinese, although some people are not convinced. I think we may be doing something wrong though, as when we pull them out we get strange looks. It might be the bright colours and the traditional style cups we purchased.

Who knows?

Como que Té? Pero si eso es English y de London mismamente. Que se dejen de tes y que se pasen al COLA CAO , the authentic passion drink of the new population . Pero que no se pasen ya que sin a 254.325.653 chinos les da por tomar Cola Cao , me suben el precio del envase del Super Amara y les doy de perkas a todos uno por uno...

Agur!
