Saturday, December 18, 2004 :::
My friends Yoav and Stef just got back from a crazy vacation tour of southeast asia, including Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, China, and Vietnam. I had a hard enough time adjusting to Schwipp-Schwapp instead of Coca-Cola when I went to Germany. Being a sheltered American, I have a distorted view of asian countries, so whenever I think of "vacations" in that part of the world, I think of things I wouldn't ever want to experience, like uncurable diarreah, chicken flu, SARS, or horribly disgusting nightmare-come-true cuisine. After viewing their vacation photos, it seems I'm not totally off base in my ethnocentric prejudice. This one is from dinner time in China. Fried bugs on sticks. Kinda like the State Fair meets Fear Factor:
But then some other pictures seem to show that maybe it's not so different over there after all, like this picture of a wish they saw at a temple in Japan:
From her lips to Buddha's ears.
Anyway, welcome back guys.

A reminder of why I have no desire to ever visit one of those countries...I wonder what food of ours mortifies them...?
