STORIES - Meat
It is difficult to quite work out why people are so discerning about what meat they will eat or not. If you can stand back from a subject and try to eliminate social and other conditioning, when it comes down to scales of weird looking creatures, there is not much difference between a Lobster or a Tarantula. Why are the former deemed a luxury edible for millions and the latter reviled by those same millions and only eaten by a few specific groups of humanity. The story is similar for people of mostly British heritage, out of a huge range of animal life why only cows, goats and sheep and not donkeys, horses and zebra. The good thing about this of course is that, at least while travelling, there are some things that really are regional specialities. Guinea pig anyone?
