Old Town Shenkeng is famous for it's stinky tofu. As soon as you arrive the pungent smell invades your nostrils like a men's locker room. There's so much to see though, and it's a charming quaint street lined with all kinds of shops for eats and goodies...mostly different kinds of eats, with each shop offering you all sorts of samples, so it's almost like having lunch at Costco, but better.
I never thought that so early in my life, I would already live to see 3 different popes. I suppose as a child, I expected Pope John Paul II to live forever. No matter, we now have a new pope—the first in the modern era from Latin America. One news article headline read, “Meet The New Pope: Francis Is Lead Who Takes The Bus To Work.” That put a warm smile on my face. I have great faith in him, and I pray for his papacy.
