That one works.
but just look at the lovely scenery!
For the Japanese,
I've been hearing some things about WW2 education to the current generation, the missing out of some facts and herding of students to the war memorials to show how the Japanese were victims of atomic bombings.
But that's just all in the news, how is this part of history being taught over there?
Also, to the others out there, how many times a month do you eat food/recipes/dishes native to your country/state/hometown?
In winter, every two weeks we have a raclette, and every other week a tartiflette, from Savoy.
Beside them, we have Pizzas once a week, pasta regularly, and every meals are "French" meals.
But I don't really understand your question. Wouldn't most of us eat food from our country most of the time anyway?
cosidering lombardy rightfully belongs to austria: all of the time.
Contrary to popular belief of most people in countries around me, almost all of the "traditional" foods from around here are "traditional, national foods" in at least 1-2 more countries around.
If I go by how often I eat food that's not found in most of the world but is found in many places around the Balkans, then probably every day, or at least once every two days.
If I exclude most of this food and leave only what's unique to this country and this country alone, then probably once every 2-3 weeks or so (although we have a cheese that might be unique and that I eat a lot, but I just don't know).
Do you ever get used to that smell? I have to go out to breathe in regular intervals because of it. The taste on the other hand is delicious!
Well, I've only ever had kangaroo meat once or twice (it's delicious), and I've never eaten koala or platypus. Damper is just plain bland. Apart from that, Australia doesn't have its own cuisine. Just a mish-mash of other culture's foods.
Well, I think it really depends on where you're staying. I live in a place which has no native culture whatsoever (like Australia or Singapore for example), so having meals with dishes from my own culture is not that common on a day-to-day basis.
Also, the picture for raclette on wikipedia is just awesome.
and that's more than most of us . I hear it's popular with the tourists though.
Well, deer and corn I guess you could consider native. That and beef. So I guess that counts.
Actually we eat lots of foods native to us. Cheeseburgers and Hot Dogs every memorial day.
But pasta, I think that's italian food so we can't consider that.
You liar! Its horrible.
I don't eat any food considered Irish. Probably because I'd have to live solely on stew and irish breakfasts if I was to attempt to do so. I mostly eat Italian I guess, and sandwiches.
I find Kangaroo meat pretty gross, but then, I don't really like steak very much and it's basically like a stronger, tougher version of steak.
Guam? The Marianas? US Virgin Islands?
I've been to every state but Alaska, Montana, Idaho, North and South Dakota, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Maine. And none of the territories...
Practically every day.
I don't think I've ever had peach anything.
I drink way too much Coke, though.
Oh yes. The smell of melted cheese is yummy.
You are very sick person and need help.
They say that the best way to cure these types of sickness is to keep giving the person what they want (melted cheese in this case ) in huge amounts everyday.
