From talking to men cooking their breakfast on the street (and insisting that I sample...NOT), to learning about the various spices at the food stalls from the farmers in India, to following our guide's careful eyes while snorkeling in the waters of the Maldives to point out some very strange looking creatures, Steve and I had a ...
