Radetzky, Vienna, Shanghai
It's Vienna, it's the Goldener Saal and Kurt Waldheim is in the audience. It's a modern Chinese Orchestra from Shanghai playing a mainly Chinese repertoire on Chinese instruments. But what's this? Wait. Why are they strumming their pipas like guitars .And today I had a Ghanaian lunch with abun-abun (spinach cooked with spices, garlic and chili).
