I’m at a pay phone waiting to call you…but I don’t want to get electrocuted, so I’ll just talk to you when I see you at home…
I almost grabbed one of these sticks and started eating these scorpions recently in Bejing, China. Problem is…they are still alive! The cook will take them and deep fry them and sprinkle them with some salt before you ate them…which I did. I actually ate two. Cooking them cooks the poison out (supposedly). I could have sworn I felt some numbness in the back of my neck for a while after eating them!
Now…that’s an entry way! Forbidden Palace, Bejing China. Keep checking back, I’ll have plenty more pictures and stories from my recent trip to Asia where I ate duck, fugu and scorpions!
Scorpions, pigeons, beatles and sea-horses were just a few of the many types of crazy food we saw at this Bejing market the other day. I ate TWO scorpions!
This is how we do it in Guanzhou, China…some excellent lamb!
It goes up all around you
A sunny Sunday in Hong Kong
Soccer in the city
Nothing going wrong
A concrete field
Spectators waiting for a thrill
So far away from home
Yet so comfortable
I get an excited chill…
