Down Arrow Part 6

Here we moved to a hotel and checked in and then proceeded to have Indian food, which my hosts were more keen on having since they loved it; but could not visit the restaurant not knowing what to order.

The Indian restaurant was Namaste India.

All four of us enjoyed our lunch, me because it was the first day after almost a week that I was really eating food to my liking.

Also, because my Chinese hosts were fond of Indian food and really relished the dishes ordered.

We had a variety of breads, especially Rotis (Indian breads) that were also very fresh and good.

Whatever was left on the table was packed by the hosts and they took it home for dinner. Here we also had Kulfi (Indian Milk Icecream) which was really good.

Then, in the afternoon, again went for a factory visit. It produced electrical and electronic items like switches, and ICs for cars.

It was a very small factory but does a business of nearly US$ 10 million per annum.

Most of the other factories are located away from Ningbo city similar to Mumbai (Bombay) and Navi Mumbai (New Bombay) or Pune and its peripheral towns.

I was back at the hotel for the night.

Down Arrow Day 6

Next day, took a flight to Xiamen, to visit the last supplier. Met them at the airport and they took me for lunch directly, to a restaurant in a five star hotel.

It is in a complex of an International exhibition centre, and well frequented by people.

But here again the food and it's display was truly prepared to international standards with helpful nametags for the dishes.

Thank God for small mercies, since reading the names helped recognize what was being offered. There was a big variety, from Lamb to turtle including duck, frog etc.

However, my lunch was restricted to non-flavored bread slices and cheese with fresh fruits and salad. So in way I was eating good and healthy food (suiting my typical Indian palate).
