I head through to the hotel dining room, knowing that, since this is a completely Chinese hotel, there will be almost nothing I want to eat.

I consider berating the staff on this point but realize I don't know how to say "Rice Krispies" in Chinese, so I grab a couple of sweetened bread rolls and sit down in the corner of the dining room with a pot of Chinese tea."
