41. Ummm. . .not really.

I still live here, albeit in a much wealthier section of Jiangsu called Nanjing. But when I was in Shijiazhuang in Hebei. . .not really true.

As for the "eat at home. . ." I'm not talking about the culinary selection based on culture, I'm talking about the culinary selection based on quantity.

Imagine a rectangular room 600 feet by 200 feet. Along the two 600 foot walls and one of the 200 foot wall is nothing but foot, priced anywhere between one yuan and four yuan, depending on the choice.

For nine kuai (street slang for yuan), a student can pig themselves out and have to throw food away. Nine kuai = about $1.45

Compare that with the Floridian that has to spent four dollars a day on a salad bar.
