Beautiful! Those mushrooms are so cool.
i wouldn't have thought these were taken in China! and i never had heard that coffee in China is good, i never tried it though i've been there (mostly in and around shanghai) three times! wow!
That last shot is gorgeous. I love the coffee in China.
The only decent coffee I had in China was at - sue me - the Starbucks on Shamian Dao. The worst was at the little place near the spice market. Gah. Like used motor oil.
I have the suspicion that the reason I love the coffee in China is that I like my coffee STR-O-O-O-ONG, like the thickest, darkest Italian espresso. Even my mother (though she went to school in Florence) thinks my coffee is unbearably strong. She used to call the coffee I made "burnt tire rubber", which is not dissimilar, I suppose, to used motor oil ;)I think maybe the coffee in China is for those who like the thickest, darkest Italian espresso, or Cuban coffee.
I usually like my java sturdy enough to stand a spoon up in it. But when I say "used motor oil", I mean that almost literally: it was a dark, sludgy drink with a suspicious sheen on the surface and a harsh, industrial flavor.I did have some wonderful, full-bodied expresso at a little cafe off the main street of Shamian.I think coffee, like love, is something that depends more on the person making it than either the where or the when.
