Getting Ready For The Show

On one of our last evenings in the US, we went to Dallas with my mother, where we met my brother and his wife for dinner and a show.  Dinner was at Howard Wang's, a somewhat upscale restaurant near the show venue.  The food was good, but, to my sensibility, overpriced.  There was definitely a surtax for atmosphere and location.  Andreas loved his satay, and my tom kha soup was good.  Andreas also had chicken fried rice, which he nearly finished.  I had gingered beef, which was also good, but not spectacular.  

Our show was the Shen Yun Chinese opera/ballet show.  It's beautiful, yes, and traditional, but if you go - be forewarned that it is also a propaganda piece for the Falun Gon movement.  They didn't allow us to take photos, either!  There was an imaginative and effective-ish use of a giant video screen at the back of the stage.
