A country of firsts, they are the first known people to use gunpowder, pasta, printing, and tea. Modern China is rife with controversy, beauty and culture. Let's meet and explore all that China has to offer. First, prepare an authentic Chinese dish or order from your favorite local Chinese restaurant. (With the current political climate, many Chinese restaurants are hurting for business so I"ll be so my support by ordering out for dinner to show my local Chinese diner some love.) However, for those wanting to cook, here is a link for some recipes and popular recipe sites. https://www.bing.com/search?q=authentic+chinese+recipes&form=EDGEAR&qs=LS&cvid=149c8cff4b484cc280ee03cb130905e5&cc=US&setlang=en-US&elv=AXK1c4IvZoNqPoPnS%21QRLOPpibyLVk3ocoh0h2Q8iR3616n1OZutbNu5HSy8r%21Eb75D7unvPBEpMKFhA4KOTVNn6jPDj6rRD2SfPCi2nPdfu&plvar=0&PC=HCTS Second, pick a topic to share with the group about China. It doesn't have to be fancy. This isn't a college dissertation. A couple minute presentation about a specific part of Chinese history, a famous Chinese person, a favorite Chinese invention, a Chinese holiday, a political breakdown of China, or any other topic about China that interests you. Please note in comments what you will be sharing so we don't have doubles. We will begin by sharing our meal choices and describing them, then move to sharing our topics of conversation. I"ll also be looking for a view fun links we are view together on Zoom maybe offering a virtual tour of some famous place in China or something cultural. Feel free to bring your own links to share if you want. Please register in advance.
