A Perfect Banquet for China's Belt and Road Forum
Every detail of the May 14 banquet for the opening of the One Belt One Road forum/summit was perfect. From the Sputnik photo gallery of the banquet: the photos of the food sculpture table illustrating the lands through which One Belt One Road will travel and the place setting for the banquet, held in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, are by Damir Sagolj for Reuters; the photo of the thousand or so guests seated at the banquet is by Wu Hong for Reuters.
Wish I knew the menu. Not too long ago the Western press would have been full of news about every last detail of the banquet including the menu. Times have changed.
