Why eat local food when on vacation


I don't know about you, but when I travel I'm all about LOCAL. Local food, culture, drink, etc. And as in such I look forward greatly to tasting said local cuisines. I dare not ask if there's a McDonald's, KFC, Boston Pizza etc. And afterall, why would I do such? 

Give me the local food. If locals are eating cou-cou with callaloo and flying fish for lunch, that's what I want. You understand? in Colombia in Colombia

Now, I totally understand that for people who are unadventurous and use to eating the same boring 'beige' tasteless food, that venturing outside of their comfort zone is probably like skydiving without a parachute, but, believe me when I say, you will be better off for giving your tastebuds something new, damn delicious, possibly life changing and ultra healthy.

Local fruits are always a winner!
