Name something unusual you ate while travelling. Would you eat that again?
I was in Kyrgyzstan a couple of weeks ago. Some matronly women in a village insisted that I drink some of the fermented horse milk they were selling, because apparently it will make me strong. :ermm:

I certainly wouldnt voluntarily drink it again or in the first place for that matter. As well as it being not too nice tasting the conditions they keep and serve it in are none too hygenic. One has to drink carefully to avoid the pieces of dirt and hair that are often in it.

I wish I could say I had something unusual but I dont remember an oppurtunity.

Well, My friend from Brazil sent me seeds of vegetables common to her region for my garden. So I grew, and tried for the first time " Maxixe" Kind of tasted like a very seedy cucumber. It travelled to me :tongue:

I had these on vacation in St. Thomas in '85, still living in Jersey. Now, living in Fl. they are not so unusual.

Bugs at Bugfest... although it was only a 4 mile travel.
No, I probably won't eat them again till next year, LOL!

What's so unusual - that you actually found sausage in it?

I had lychee nuts in San Francisco's Chinatown when I was a kid...I also had avocado, an artichoke, and a buffalo burger on that trip.
A lot of the things that were unusual when I was a kid are commonly found in our grocery stores these days.

I had calamari for the first time in San Francisco as a kid, at Fisherman's Wharf, I think. Dad didn't tell me what it was till after I had eaten some! Loved it.

In 2001, I went to Turkey, and the traditional Turkish breakfast was unusual for me - olives, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese and bread, with Turkish coffee and cherry juice.

And a couple of years ago, I tried ceviche for the first time, in Colorado. Now I can't get enough :smile:
