I finally had my first hot pot experience. Hot pot is a type of restaurant with simmering pots of broth in the middle of the table and you cook your own food. It is extremely popular here. There was a variety of seafood, meat, and vegetables, with thinly sliced beef being the most popular choice. In a way, it is similar to fondue. It is a very social way to dine. We went with other Gore folks after the cocktail party on Saturday. I am fairly certain Erik and I were the only Caucasians in the place--we like that.
