Shanghai Postcard #4

There's a long list of things I miss from home (nice trash bags, unsweetened tomato juice), but coffee is item #1.

After an perfect track record of almost five years, my coffee situation unraveled completely this week. We're down to the last bag I brought back in August (and to make things worse, it's decaf), and suddenly there are no coffee filters to be found anywhere. First world problems, right? It gets worse - there's no half and half in China! 

I made cowboy coffee this morning. It turned out ok, but I am very much looking forward to being back in the land of good coffee over the holidays.
