Ruth says: The market in Wuhan was quite astounding. There were bowls of frogs and snakes ( both of which you can see in the picture), and a million other different kinds of live animals including turtles to be used in cooking. It was really interesting to see but some of the methods of the Chinese for preparing the animals were really gruesome. We watched a fish being scaled before it was even killed!
We inadvertaently managed to order some of these rarer creatures when we were in a restaurant in Kunming. We ordered 2 dishes that we thought were squid and beef, but they turned out to be baby turtles and dog's tail. I just ate vegetables that night.
Oh and Helen, you are very right about the chicken's feet for snacks. They are everywhere.
