Call it a century egg, preserved egg, thousand year egg, or horse piss egg. It still tastes as good.
I always have to remind myself that if I explain cheese, that amazing delicious substance I love and cherish from my home state of Wisconsin, it probably sounds rather disgusting to someone who has never had it. Ew, you let the milk go bad and curdle and then let it get old, and then you eat that??

This was the best hummus I've ever had in my life. Hashim in Amman, Jordan. Good lord...
Restaurant Hashim. Could be the best hummus I’ve ever had in my life. Anyone who already has a guidebook will already know this. With some falafel and fuul to match. Hashim in Amman was the first and last place I ate in Jordan during my 10 days there. Some Facebook followers might recall my

Another great Japanese Craft Brewer's taproom in Tokyo. Forget Super Dry, Japan has some great microbrews these days:

I had to clean my camera sensor in Bangkok, Thailand. Why was I nervous?
At first I could ignore them. A couple of vague spots might show up in the clouds on a wide shot or were hidden inside darker images. I could always clone them away if they were noticeable. But then you get a beauty mark a la Marilyn Monroe on an old street vendor's nose and you have to be honest

The Japanese, the masters of the toilet. Check out Tokyo Haneda's restrooms, a traveler's... well, maybe not a dream, exactly. Who dreams of such things?
If there is one thing I hate – and believe me, there is way more than one – it's the airport restroom. Especially when traveling alone and you have no one to watch your bags, it becomes a bit of a circus act in there. Stalls are often way too small, or the door swings shut too close to the
