Another of the facets of Chinatown that I experienced when Fern and I took the Chinatown Tour was Chinese traditional medicine - we went into a Chinese herbalist shop and looked around. Above are the bins of Ginseng - this stuff is expensive! Below is what I hope would be prescribed for me. I am fond of fungi though this one is not one I've seen before.

Chinese herbal medicine is pretty mystical. I was given a sack full of stuff to brew into a tea to help with my allergies. Unfortunately it was so awful that I couldn't choke it down. There is a reality show on here in the USA about 'ginsengers' who harvest the stuff in the's pretty cut throat and they make a ton of money.
