China from A to Z: E is for Eggs and Eaves

Eggs

I chose eggs as a topic for E because they are a good example of the greater variety of foods readily available in China. Even a corner convenience store will typically have more than one variety.

I wrote a post about eggs a few months ago: I marvel at how Chinese eggs are just put into a plastic bag to be carried home, they rarely crack or break, and American grocery store eggs, that are coddled in cardboard cartons, crack or break t least as often.

 

Eaves

The traditional temple architecture has elaborately decorated eaves. The attention to detail is amazing. There are works of art there, yet people rarely look up as they strain to see over the crowds to the alters and thrones.

I love the geometry and bright colors put there for those of us who look around and are less good at pushing to the front of the line.
