1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Wednesday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter – we’ll highlight great posts. Add Media photos from each month’s most popular challenge.

Yesterday’s Banquet

Impressive

China is a food culture. Period. End of story. People mark the beginning of the school year, or any venture, I gather, with a banquet.

Yesterday our American school treated us to a sumptuous luncheon. I soon lost track of the number of courses we had. That’s easy to do at one of these affairs in China.

Fatty Pork

One of my new colleagues had the good fortune of celebrating a birthday yesterday so we got to finish off the meal with a beautiful cake. What I like about Asian baked goods is they aren’t too rich or too sweet.

I think even a Chinese person who lives to be 100 would never eat all the dishes available just in our region, Shandong. One thing that isn’t poorly made in China is the food.
