I wasn't feeling at my healthiest, though, unfortunately. I never really got ill in Asia - I don't think I threw up in ten and a half months (and if I did it was alcohol-related). But today I felt dog-rough, and I knew why: it was the Korean barbecue I'd eaten the night before. The place was an interesting-looking restaurant on the riverfront and I'm always a sucker for trying unusual food. I ate chicken hearts (pretty ropey), barbecued goat (which I couldn't tell apart from the pork) and some barbecued chicken feet. Which were utterly, utterly foul. And I ate both of them. Tendons and claws and all. Someone later told me you're only supposed to eat the meat but there was no meat. It was the tofu salad that did for me though: at first it didn't taste too bad, but after the third mouthful my stomach put the shutters up and said, no more. Too late. The damage was done. Didn't eat anything all the next day... it's a good thing the Buddha Park was interesting.
