Day 35 in Beijing: Larvae, It’s Whats For Dinner.
There is a famous ad campaign in America.
The tagline is,
Yes, Dear Readers,
That is Sam Elliot’s voice you hear.
The Dude obviously abides beef.
Food can be a difficult issue when living in a new country.
I have the belief that I should try eat the food that originates in the place I’m visiting.
That being said,
there are just some things I choose not to eat.
Larvae would be one of them.
This is a shot from the local Wu-Mart.
In other words, this isn’t a delicacy.
It is lined up with other fish, eggs, chickens, ducks, shrimp, and
I think I’ll stick with the shrimp won tons that I bought instead.
And, to be honest,
I wouldn’t judge anyone who said the food I eat is weird, gross, or disgusting.
We all have our own personal and cultural identities.
So, call me unimaginative,
but I just can’t imagine saying,
Larvae, It’s Whats For Dinner.
