This *is* a food blog right?

Well, sort of and only at times. This weekend was long and strange one even by my standards. Remind me to tell you about it if you see me out.

In the meantime, trying to reconstruct myself, I landed on my friend Van's blog and through there I found a really good entry depicting global food fare through photography and monetary value.

It kinda puts into perspective, for me at least, how lucky I am to have devoured the pizza I had for dinner tonight, when easily by a strike of bad luck or cosmic karma I could have been feasting on garbanzo beans and water.
