Almost Certainly Singapore's Best Wurst

**DISCLAIMER: Just because I'm writing about German food during the USA v Germany World Cup game doesn't mean my soccer allegiances are towards my semi-European heritage. I do love a good German meal, though.

Charlie had some serious food poisoning in Malaysia and by the time we left Malaka for Singapore, we were ready for some Western food. But by Western food, I don't mean the awful pizza and pasta you can get in any tourist destination in the region. I mean sausages. German ones. Ironically located in one of Singapore's iconic hawker centers where almost 100% of stalls sling Asian food, Erich's Wuerstelstand provides just that: German classics as offered by the country's next-door neighbor, Austria. Erich's premise may seem out of place, but he's actually got a real corner on the market considering his claim that his is the last sausage kiosk before the equator. That's hard to contest.

Bali's Famous Babi Guling

India has changed my relationship with food. While in Bali about two months ago I was prepared and pumped to search for good local dishes like babi guling, now I kind of just dread meal time because I know that after one bite I'll be full and kind of want to vom, then for the next few hours I'll have indigestion. It's a good time here in India, you should all try it! I mean, of course there have been some really nice things to eat, but right about now my cravings are only for things like a McDonalds hamburger (no beef in India, though) and, like, that chili/cream cheese/cheddar dip that your mom serves with tortilla chips. SO that's where we stand currently.
