Roysheshune (Jewish New Year). Our first one in Guangzhou. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have been able to celebrate with close friends. To have been able to get closer to other friends. And to have had the opportunity of meeting a new friend, a Jew who was not going to celebrate for lack of other fellow friends from the tribe!
The habibi prepared a succulent stew (his signature chulent), and besides the mandatory apples we had fresh Chinese dates a some strange African fruit called Kiwano (how's that for something new to try?). Plus our also traditional beets and pomegranate salad. And wine and mezcal (thanks to one of our friends!).
This was, in every sense, a very sweet beginning. As it should be.
Shune toyve! Happy new year! שנה טובה ומתוקה!
