*Yoko is in China for 10 days! And with no access to Facebook or Instagram, she is sending us photos the old school way — via postcards. We’ll be featuring these snapshots from Yoko in Chengdu and Shanghai all week here on the blog. Enjoy! – Kayoko

A Shanghai breakfast mean carb-in-carbs. This breakfast food is called a ci fan and the type I got was simple, a youtiao fried fritter wrapped in sticky rice. The texture of the crispy you tao was really delicious alongside the sticky rice. People were lining up for these onigiri (rice balls) as early as 6:30am along the side streets of our hotel as the sun was starting to wake us all up.

Starting the day off right with some carbs-in-carbs!
