If you know me at all you know that I love to eat. I think about my next meal before I have finished preparing the one I am about to eat. With that in mind, here is a short list of all the foods I have missed eating this past year, either because they are too expensive to buy on my stipend, because they are inappropriate or unappetizing in the constant heat, or because they are next to impossible to find on the island:

  • sushi
  • ramen
  • berries
  • charcuterie/cured meats
  • perogies
  • croissant
  • wine
  • lemon
  • dried fruit and nuts
  • grainy┬ábread
  • salmon
  • soup

My mouth is watering already!
