When I went to Yan'an, I decided to refuse the big meal of my friends and went to the street to find the festival. The old Shaanxi North Festival store is shaped like a cave dwelling.

Uncovering the curtain, a warmth hit, the winter in the north is really comfortable. A large plate was brought up, and 15 kinds of spices were placed in a mahogany tray.
