Agree with the other posters on this: it sounds delicious!

I'm glad you had fun.
Hope the jet lag goes away soon.

My father ran supermarkets over there and had trouble selling pre-packaged meat. Nobody wanted to buy it because they weren't sure it was fresh. Its more about the open markets and I kind of respect that. I'm sure factory farming isn't as rampant over there as it is here.
While I definitely agree that it's great that not everyone in the world's gone over to monoculture and factory farming, at the same time I wonder if the distance people over here have from animal exploitation won't help in the long run, by making people less morally comfortable with inflicting pain, etc.
