Ok, I Admit that I Like Squid

One of the nice things as an American living in the Philippines is the variety of new things to eat and drink. Just recently I have had a few opportunities to eat squid. Once was in a seafood salad, and the other two times were plates of sizzling squid, one spicy and the other not. Not bad.

In addition to squid, there are quite a few other new foods that we have yet to try. One is durian which is a fruit that smells like strong garlic, and balut which is partially formed duck egg. Both are somewhat "acquired" tastes. We are not rushing out to try these two just yet.
