When planning my summer travels I expected to meet some interesting people, see some weird sights and eat some foods that you definitely would not find back at home. But let me tell you, one thing I definitely didn’t expect to be writing is the following: this week I may have drunk turtle penis.
Face screwed up and eyes squinted, I know that the aqua blue bath rolling in somewhere in front of me is the only way to regain my vision. I look like I’ve really lost it as i hop from one foot to another, with the burning sand warmly greeting the bottom of my feet. Now it feels like a matter of life and death that I plunge head first in to the sea as soon as possible. I finally stride forward and submerge myself, at least mentally letting out an “ahhhh”.
I’m in the Dominican Republic and it’s very easy to understand why the stock response when enquiring about a local’s wellbeing, is “excellente!”. It may also be because 80% of the copious amounts of rum produced here, are also consumed here! Rum is enjoyed in just about every way imaginable, but the most popular way is to combine it with red wine, herbs and spices.
Being in the Caribbean, I probably wasn’t the first person to mishear the waiter as he offered me some Mamajuana on my first night here.
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten or drunk?
