Yes, it always amazes me. An economist might be able to explain it. I think we were in Turkey when we saw carrots from Australia for $1 per KG. They are much more in Australia than that!

Yep! Certainly is part of the adventure We can't see how the locals live if we can just reach into our huge freezer and pull out a slab of beef for 10,000 miles away. Mind you I am feeling like a loooooong cruise in Argentina!

Lol yep can so agree with this...thinking of all the weird and wonderful combinations of stale, squashed and down right odd stuff I have eaten at the end of a four day mountain hike. Amazing what you eat with relish after hours of trudging uphill with a heavy pack...for FUN

Adventure ...LMAO....scoff, scoff...says the man who is chowing down on fresh brie, pain au chocolate and a good baguette. Easy to say when the memory of dog for dinner is a distant nightmare eh Mark!!!! You just love torturing us all with your magical Mediterranean cuisine NOT that I am at all jealous

Off to the techy page now to figure out how you do that quote from two people in one post thing before I chow down on a boring breakfast of bran flakes.
