"Food for Thought" Perthgerl's Profile
When I travel to a new place, I especially like to go to the local market or supermarket, because everybody has to eat. Sometimes I just buy what the person in front of me is buying and have a go. Its a great opportunity to interact with locals in a non-threatening environment - everyone wants to show you what goes with what and how to eat it. Enjoying local food is a great way to show respect for my host country's culture. Also, sometimes I have to see it on the shelves to believe it exists.
I remember the meal in the photo very well for a couple of reasons. Firstly, we got a basket/bowl, chose what we wanted from the vegetable stall, then the lady cooked it up for us. Another lady wandered by selling fried crickets in little paper bags, so we bought a bag and ate some. The people on our table struck up a conversation with us and gave us some good advice on what to eat next.
I love exploring differences between cultures while doing the most universal thing of all - eating.
