Google Asian Swamp eel.
 The Asian swamp eel, swamp eel, rice eel, or white rice-field eel, Monopterus albus, is a air-breathing species of fish.

It a dish served in many restaurants in China. However, be aware that in spring and summer they are loaded with parasites. Cooking does not always kill them and you can be infected.It is tempting to try the local delicacies but in this case you should abstain.

This arrived from the Guangzhou office last night.

Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region Travel

Security Message for American Citizens

 

Although U.S. Consulate Guangzhou does not have any information regarding specific threats, in light of recent events and ongoing tensions, the U.S. Mission has instructed its staff to defer all personal travel to the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region until further notice. 

 

U.S. Consulate Guangzhou reminds U.S. citizens that while violent crime is not common in China, violent incidents may occur without warning.  The vast majority of these incidents are related to disputes over land seizures, social issues, employment disputes, environmental problems, or ethnic tensions.  In 2014, violent attacks, including acts of terrorism, have resulted in several dozen injuries and deaths in public spaces throughout China, including train stations and markets.  Although neither U.S. citizens specifically nor foreigners generally were targeted in these attacks, such incidents pose a random threat to foreigners.  U.S. Consulate Guangzhou recommends that U.S. citizens pay attention to their surroundings when traveling in China and report any concerns to the local police.

 

For the latest security information, U.S. citizens living and traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs Internet website at http://travel.state.gov/, where the current Worldwide Caution, Country Specific Information, Public Announcements, and Travel Warnings can be found.  Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the United States or Canada, or for callers outside the United States and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time (EST), Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays). 

 

U.S. Consulate Guangzhou’s American Citizen Services Unit can be reached at 86-3814-5775.  After hours, a duty officer can be reached by calling 86-10-8531-4000.  The addresses and telephone contact information for U.S. Consulate Guangzhou, the U.S. Embassy and other consulates in China are at the bottom of this announcement.

 

U.S. citizens residing or traveling in China are reminded to register with the U.S. Embassy or closest U.S. Consulate by entering your travel itinerary and contact information at https://step.state.gov/step/.

31 people dead. Two vehicles drove into people in a market place and at the same time threw explosives out of the cars as they mowed down the victims. Then the cars exploded. Leaving nearly 100 injured.

The pictures of the aftermath are quite explicit with dead bodies lying along a stretch of the road.

These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time (EST), Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).
