Chinese Menu, Yibin, China.

We could recognise the numbers  on this menu and placemat, but that’s as far as our understanding went. We were, once again, in the safe hands of Shù sōng, foodie friend from Chengdu, China, who did all the ordering. We were on the way to Leshan, home of the Big Buddha, but then we made a slight 50 kilometer detour so that we could try the noodles at this restaurant in Yibin. He ordered a huge number of dishes and then we finished with a small bowl of noodles!chinese numbers

Yibin is situated on the confluence of the Yangtze and Minjiang rivers in Western China.

This post is in response to the Daily Post’s theme this week, Numbers.

Converge: Pick Me up for Work.

1-IMG_1007We are standing on the banks of the Yangtze river close to its convergence with the Min River at Yibin, Sichuan Province in China.  A large cargo boat travelling upstream slows down. A ferry waits at the scene. There is a man dressed in white standing on the edge of the ferry. 1-IMG_1008The boats finally converge. The man in white is hauled up and off to work he goes.


At the Daily Post, you may find other images on convergence.
