China 2017 – 6 – Family Dinner

It’s interesting how the way we eat reflects on the socioeconomic structures in which we live.

In the West, we try to pile as much on our own plates from a buffet of options and keep it all to ourselves.

In China, we eat equidistant from the options, and share in a communal gathering where everyone can enjoy a bit from each offering.
