As I read through your comments each day I am saddened that you are being paid to attend this trip. Your mockery of the food is childish. Having just returned from China with my 16 year old, he was definitely a greater ambassador than that of which you have displayed. The biggest part of the Chinese culture is their food and the presentation of such. You have openly shown your dislike long before ever trying a single dish. Perhaps someone else should have taken your place that would have the decency to respect the culture while representing a gov't entity from the United States. Your hosts have been too kind to put up with your antics. You should be left to starve a week so you could appreciate the food. I myself have had dinner at the Great Hall of the people and am sure your antics were an embarrassment for everyone else attending. Not everyone gets a chance to have dinner there. It’s an honor. I have hosted many Chinese delegations to the US as well and can tell you, they don't like Del Frisco’s BUT they eat everything as it is done out of respect, something that you lack. Before you leave, apologize for your rude behavior as you will be working for those who hosted you in a couple of years.
