Around the World in 30 minutes

Friday evening the Turtle Bay Museum had an event to kick off their “Hungry World” exhibit. It began with a photo tour of incredible pictures of families from all around the world. The posed with the food which the family would normally consume in one week. The families and their food were also described. It was totally fascinating -- as some eat simply to live and we in America eat also for pleasure. Some countries had western products, the most common was pepsi!

Later, we sampled food from different countries. It was my first experience with sushi and wasabi, so I had quite an experience--as my head burst into flames and cracked wide open! Actually, in a small amount it would be quite good. Also good was the Mexican Mole’ and a South American red pepper cracker spread. Oh, and I mustn’t forget the Cuban mojito, which we enjoyed as we watched the dancing demonstrations from different countries.
