"Good food is the result of non-consensual sex with invading armies." Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations.
Asheville friends of ours, Anthony (another one!) and Lisa, love to travel, whether it's around the USA or overseas. In fact, right now, Anthony is down in New Orleans celebrating Mardi Gras (and the Saints Super Bowl victory!). This duo even met while they were traveling - somewhere out West, I believe. Not only that, but they chose to marry in the Northern Thailand city of Chiang Mai! How 'bout that for adventure?!?
Lisa spent a considerable amount of time in Guatemala in 2001. You can read about Lisa's experience here. To further underscore her interest in all things Latino, Lisa speaks Spanish and is now teaching English to a Mexican immigrant through the Literacy Council in Asheville.
Above, I posted some images from Anthony and Lisa's October 2009 trip to Southern Spain. I do love food (and coffee), so these images especially stood out. I jokingly posted one of Lisa eating part of a cactus, simply because she's a vegetarian and the meat dishes must have been a bigger challenge.
