Eat! Mangiare! Aufressen! Yemek! No matter where you are from or where you go, everyone loves to eat. Our culture, our history, and our festivals are built around food. When I travel, I shop at the local markets and talk to the vendors about their food. I search out those dishes and foods unique to the town or country I am visiting.
Walking through the city market, stopping for a refreshment, or buying local produce allows a traveler like me a chance to get the know the people and the culture of the place I am visiting.
