If that's the case, they were either old, or not cleaned properly. That's too bad.

Then they were raised/caught in a pool that wasn't running fresh water and probably were awful. We have had trout from ponds that had that muddy taste.

But for something I really wouldn't eat--sea cucumber.

kinda limits your salad intake, doesn't it?

Guess you're not very big on pickles, either.

Okay, okay.
Most things with vinegar.

I like pickles, and sauerkraut (sp.?)

I eat ceasar salad only.

There's no vinegar in sauerkraut.

In the southern U.S. it's akin to Krystal's. Teeny burgers with steamed onions served on a square bun. Not for the fast-food squeamish I'm pretty sure they don't sell things like this in other parts of the world... more power to them!

In '04 I resigned from my job (since hired back) and spent four months traveling throughout the US, Canada, and Alaska. Spent most of my time hiking in national parks and eating in the cities.

I drove up through British Columbia and the Yukon to Alaska as part of the trip. After spending a week and a half in some of the most remote lands I had ever experienced, I pulled into Whitehorse (capital of Yukon) only to find Walmart, McDonalds, Subway, and all the other chains. I had this romantic idea of a small town or "outpost". It was just another big-box developed parcel like something you would see amongst the highway grids of the midwest.

Seems like most other places I visited were just like it except for a few cities like San Francisco which still have some character and soul.
