A travel experience without the tale of the food seen and tasted is an incomplete tale. I urge you to ask services@travelwithdante.com,  where you can find these foods anytime you visit. If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home. – James Michener.
