    Hello, Hot Pot is famous in Chongqing, I visited twice, 2010 and 2011! Chongqing is worlds largest city Time Mag. said 34,000,000! Bigger than top 10 cities in USA. I had visited most large cities in the world but this was overwhelming! 3rd photo is me eating at Hot Pot Restaurant in Jeifangbei, the shopping area, and wow, this store had more shopping than maybe all Santa Rosa where I live! I was on the 7th floor, Boats go by and grab food off them and pay by number of plates! I was fat and depressed when I went to China by freighter, but it was good. The rich businessmen thought I was Warren Buffet!! Wanted my autograph and to buy me dinner! When I returned I changed my life, lost weight and look like me again! Last photo is Chongqing, where two great rivers meet. Night is so beautiful with fireworks and lights! Now I will cook at my table!! At home!

      Wow looks good! My ex (Midori is from Miyako, small Is.) said Japanese use frozen beef because cut thin it curls in Asian cooker! You can buy Sterno gel and put in small ceramic dish and use for fire! (I was told). Oh no tipping allowed in China!
    3. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Frozen beef allows thin slicing! Works well!
    4. toracat toracat, 7 years ago

      I have been to Chongqing and we ate hotpot so delicious!. This is where we boarded for Yangste river cruise ...2009. The was very scary to me. It was so big, polluted - grey obviously. I was quiet the entire time. It was too much. I felt I could disappear and no one would even blink. We floated by new construction apt. high rises 30 stories high by 40 or more buildings. All dark in process of construction. I bet they're done now. Actually while restaurants might say no tipping - that was NOT TRUE for everyone else on our trip. And they were very aggressive when we didn't tip. It was confusing because our guides kept saying "no tipping" - and then frowned when we didn't. Sometimes they ran after us calling us cheapskate! That was hilarious - of course we stopped and tipped but it wasn't pleasant. I felt like our tour guides meant to keep us uncomfortable at times. But - that's traveling - believe me I LOVED CHINA and will go back.

      It was strange, I had no guides and took old China boat up river. Meals were almost free! Breakfast was about $1.50! on the ship. I ate at buffet in hotels in morning and at small restaurants in evening. No one mentioned tips to me. One Chicken place by police station had about 200+ police there! They bought me beer and paid for my dinner! I have been to 35+ countries and never was on a tour. China only trip where stayed in 4 star hotels, but they were very cheap $40 a night.

      You look like a new man now Tora!
      I would love to visit China - a little bit of hotpot at home will have to suffice.
    11. toracat toracat, 7 years ago
      thank you, yes I am back to me! haha

      I think that is the difference. We were on a tour -our first and only. If my boyfriend went alone he would do it like you. And he like you has travelled the world. But when you're a couple....oh boy they think the "wife" expects more. Same everywhere we've traveled together. It sucks.
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 7 years ago
      Sorry - didn't mean to come on so negative. I love traveling. You just have to flow w/it and enjoy the new experiences.

      I love to travel. Have been on the road my whole life. Have literally been almost everywhere, couple of African countries that maybe aren't too friendly at the moment. Antarctica...check. Arctic...check. I want to go to Bhutan, my Mom just got back. I mostly backpack. Some countries I would just hire a driver for weeks on end. Safaris are tours aren't they? So Ive done those a bunch. I told my husband if he ever mentioned the words...lets go on a cruise, I would divorce him.
      Torakitty, get practicing! I'm getting hungry! Wouldn't a dinner party be fab?
