|Are they conspiring? :-)|
This brings up a topic that I see discussed a lot among teachers in Georgia - food safety. I will not get into a debate on whether or not the food here is safer to eat than in other countries. I believe that there is adjustment period we all go through when visiting any foreign country and some people take longer to adjust than others. Have I been sick? Yes. But I can honestly say that overall I feel healthier here eating freshly prepared meals than I did in the states eating processed junk. Don't get me wrong - junk food is catching-on in Georgia, but the majority of Georgian kitchens still lack a microwave and a pantry full of "boxed meals". I imagine this is how my parents grew up and this is one of the simple things in Georgia that I wish Americans could go back to.
Off to rest.
