A chuanr too far??

Oh dear, I have been shockingly ill with a dose of the la du zi these past few days.

This always seems to happen to me some time in June. Will we never learn? We know it becomes unsafe to eat yangrou chuanr - the mini-kebabs of mutton from streetside vendors - once the weather becomes hot, because the meat is left lying around unrefrigerated for hours or days at a time, and.... nature takes its course. We Beijing veterans know this all too well, and yet.... every year, we keep pushing the envelope; every year, we keep getting tempted to try some chuanr later and later in May, on into June, until... we get catastrophically ill from it.

No more 'meat sticks' till September now, I fear.
