Part of the 2010 USA Trip Series
After New England, we returned to North Carolina, where we had 2 weeks until our return flight back home to Taiwan. We spent quite a few days relaxing out by the pool and enjoying the local cuisine.
We checked out the new downtown baseball park for an evening game.
Greensboro built a baseball park right in the downtown area and it’s proving to be a very successful facility.
Personally, I’m not into sports at all. I can’t name you 3 professional sports teams, or tell you how games are scored, or basically anything about them. My sister assured me that this wasn’t your ordinary ball park or game, and they sure had some crazy stuff going on. She said it wouldn’t be boring and she was right. I actually had fun, believe it or not.
People who know about baseball will understand this scoreboard. The Tourists were the visiting team.
The next day, my family requested that Hui-chen make some of those sesame balls again, and she was only too happy to comply.
You might notice that she is also making some other dishes she made before.
All finished, it looks remarkably like what she cooked before. Everything was great!
I had been busy with the smoker, and these are baby back ribs, cut apart to make them easier to eat.
We brought some gifts from Taiwan, and the expression on people’s faces when they received them made it all worthwhile!
The last thing that I’ll mention in this installment is that we took another lake cruise, like we did in 2008. We won’t bore you with shots of this cruise, but if you want to check out the 2008 photos, they are here.
We’ll have one more installment in North Carolina, and then we’ll show you what happened to us on the return flight to Taiwan. We’ll have more food photos to show you in these last few installments as we bring this series to a close. By the time you read this, I will be in the Philippines on another adventure, and you won’t want to miss that!
