ChocolateBet: December 21, 2006

Chocolate of the Day: 

Shanghai Sensation
Mango Chocolate
Weight: 4 pieces / 7.05 oz. (200 g.) total box
Calories: unknown
Purchased from: Shanghai airport, China

Today I had 4 pieces of Shanghai Mango Chocolate (dried mango coated with milk chocolate), that I picked up in a shop at the Shanghai airport earlier this month on a business trip. The trip was great; the Mango Chocolate(s) were OK.

Today is the Winter Solstice, marking the first day of winter. It's a bit tough to think about the shorter/darker, colder days ahead. When I put in a long day inside a building at work in the summer, it's great to emerge at 8:00 p.m. in the evening in time to see the sunset. Looks like that will have to wait a few months. Mom is still in the hospital and is very ill.

I'll have to imagine the glorious, golden days of summer -- like the sunny, Shanghai landscape (titled Shanghai Century Park) on this box.
