Food!

McDonalds Shrimp Burger

If you want to get a lot of strange looks when you travel, take pictures of your food.

It’s understandably odd to see someone snapping a picture of their lunch (“Yeah, it’s a hot dog, buddy.”) but of course the fact that people thought it was absurd emphasized the whole point. Wherever we were, we were usually eating the standard local fare; but what’s normal in one country can be quite exotic in another.

We tried to photograph every unique dish we ate and the following 561 photos are the result.

To get a better look, clicking on an image will take you to the Flickr page where the date and country of the meal (if not the exact city) should  be tagged.

actually you may have the beginning of a grand cook book – food around the world – if you can remember what each tasted like – the possible ingredients and seasonings – might be an interesting challenge to try to re-create some of them – only the good ones of course – were there any that were REALLY bad?
a descrition of the ambiance and surroundings would be interesting too – what were you seeing out the window while eating this??? smells, music, other conversations –
wait – that sounds like a spy novel i read -

I love it… I always take pictures of the food while traveling, I think it is such a huge and important part of each culture – and definelty a big part of traveling…
Viele Gruesse, Kristina
