Not everyone goes so far as actually trying on the cultures they visit, but most people at least try to ingest them. The way to a cultures heart, after all, is through the visitor's belly. Over the years we've heard an entire menu full of odd foods travelers have had placed before them and I thought it would be fun to serve up a few dishes for you.
Next Week: First Arrivals
Well, sooner or later in your travels, you'll encounter the local cuisine...but what about when you first arrive? Maybe you do get out for a quick nosh, or maybe you just toss your luggage on the bed and look around your room with a sigh of relief... or disgust. What's the first thing to do when you hit the ground in a new place? What do you do to get comfortable, to get your bearings, or just get going? Do you pour over the maps, or just take a nap? We want to know what you do when you arrive in a new place.
