Noodle Man

It is said that the best noodles in China are made in Taiyuan. I tend to agree. They take making noodles very seriously and with a lot of pride. This gentleman was on the street, outside the noodle shop in the snow making noodles. The wrapped package in front are the sheets prior to cutting and boiling.

I LOVE a good noodle, and these are wonderful photos. Very surreal. Very William Gibson. They should be paintings.
