I don’t look back and think “Oh my gosh, Australia had great food.”  The only thing that really stands out is I hated that vegemite stuff.  I tried to like it, just because I knew it was such an important part of the culture, but I really think you kind of had to be raised on that to like it.  I actually brought a little jar home just because I had to share it with everybody so they can see what it was I described as axle grease.  That’s what it looked like to me.  It’s very good for you, but I didn’t like it very much.  They even mix it in water in baby bottles for the baby.  That’s what I mean you have to be raised on it to really like it.
