Life in China 2016: A Picture A Day, August 11 – See those 4 boxes of cereal on the bottom shelf? That is the cold breakfast cereal section at our local supermarket! Quite a difference from the USA where it fills an entire aisle! I sure am glad I don’t eat cereal for breakfast anymore! The Chinese people do like a hot “cereal” called rice congee or porridge for breakfast, and it often has some meat or preserved vegetables added in it. There is also oatmeal available at the supermarket. Where we used to live, the import stores did carry breakfast cereals but it cost about $10usd a box!
