Egg on the left.

This is a goose egg I bought in Tongli.  They’re sold in many of the shops around the canals for about 2 or 3 RMB. I bought mine from an old man with few teeth.  He had them in a basket by an open space where Chinese operas are performed.

It tasted like a chicken egg with a stronger flavor, but that might be because it was fresher than the eggs I usually eat.  The yolk was darker in color but I didn’t taste it.

On the way back to Shanghai from Tongli the bus passed by what must have been the source for all the eggs.  There were at least a hundred white geese sitting in a lake surrounded by fencing.

I miss Jorge a lot.
