Baking bread, Egyptian-style (Sharm El Sheikh; Egypt)

So, with my photo collection growing in direct proportion to my travel experiences, it gives me great pleasure to allow myself the privilege of branching out in 'thematic' blog ways, and to herald the arrival of the latest-born 'food' blog. Let's face it, a real traveller would never venture overseas and start to insist on only eating food which is mostly typical of their home nation - arguably, a trip to a local restaurant at home would save you a lot of money on airfares, and satisfy those desires. As for myself, well, sampling the local cuisine is all part and parcel of an overseas trek, and the ways in which food defines the nation in question's culture are so multifold that I am not even going to start citing examples thereof. All I can say is that there has to be a reason why every guide book worth its salt (!) contains at least a full page on the names of the country's popular dishes, and that reason must surely be the author's intention to allow the traveller maximum scope to be able to order dishes which typify the country they are visiting. Again, I was somewhat amused to discover that 'snack' is the name of a Finnish town! Let's see how much of an appetite these images can stir up......
