The popularity of zhacai 榨菜

On the flight from Ffm to Beijing, I sat next to a young man who was nice enough to ask if I’d like some homey food. He was on his way home after touring Europe for 10 days, and still has so many homey food from China. I wondered how many did he bring. “A lot,” he laughed.
“Is this your first trip to Europe?”
“Where did you visit?”
“I don’t know …”
“Why? ..”
“I, or we shopped mostly.”
His tourmates all have so many red bags, just liked his.

After we landed in Beijing, waiting to exit the plane, he called his parents in Tianjin, to tell them he’ll be home for lunch and his sister would pick him up from the train station. A considerate son.
