It completely got cool weather, and autumn has come.
Various vegetables and fruits ripen in this season.
In Japan, it is said that autumn is the season for big appetites.
During my travel all over the world, one African guy said to me.
"Japanese people eat the snake, don't they? That's why I don't like Japanese."
You know what !? We don't !!
Even if Japanese people actually eat the snake, does this cause you to hate Japan?
In the first place, each country has their own food culture.
Sometimes, there exists the food beyond our sense.
From the view of Japanese people, we are astonished at the escargot and frog in French food.
From the view of non-Japanese people, you think Japanese food "Natto" is disgusting, don't you?
However, I didn't deny what he said.
I accepted it as the difference of food culture, and I tried to eat anything without prejudice.
There exist one food that I couldn't accept at all.
Brain of Sheep !! I saw it in Iran.
I could never ever eat this......
You can see it in the sandwich shops all over the town.
Iranian people says, "It's very delicious !! ".
If it was unrecognizable, I might have been able to eat it.
It's apparently the "BRAIN". Don't you think so?
So as not to misunderstand, I want to say something.
I never ever hate Iranian people even though they eat the brain of sheep.
In addition to the fact that Iranian people are very kind,
Iran is the very attractive country for sight-seeing.
