The past few years have essentially consisted of my two best friends and I following each other around the world, which I am NOT complaining about.  This time, our adventures coalesced in Maputo, Mozambique, where one of my lovelies is toiling in a public health internship for her Master’s program.  Her undercover mission is to … Continue Reading

It’s no secret that we’re fervently fond of food here at The Glutton’s Digest.  One can only eat so much though, which is why we are currently detoxing after multiple nine-course meals with which South Africa has spoiled us silly.  While our bellies may be habitually full, we’re never too stuffed for a good story.  … Continue Reading

I seem to have my sassypants on, so you’ll have to excuse the boorish title.  It really does apply to our theme today, though.  Stick with me, and you’ll see what I mean. Speaking of (stick)ing with me, I must admit that I’m a big fan of food on sticks.  It’s so darned practical and … Continue Reading

If you’re in Cape Town and give a dang about food, it’s unlikely that Royale Eatery won’t fly onto your radar.  Capetonians who fancy themselves foodies have conflicting views on many of the area’s restaurants, but the city dwellers that we consulted harmoniously raved about Royale’s burgers.  Their consensus resulted in our heading to the restaurant for … Continue Reading

A French couple recently tried to engage me in an argument over American cuisine.  I almost took the conversational bait, but hesitated for three reasons: I try to discourage people from talking out of their arses as I find it to be unbecoming.  Even less appealing is an obstinate Frenchie doing so.  After learning that … Continue Reading

Much time has elapsed since my last Costa Rica post, but I am finally sitting down to write the finale, which we shall deem “the caboose.”  A month before I traveled to Costa Rica, I met a fantastic lass in Ecuador who re-ignited my curiosity about the Central American hotspot.  Prior to meeting her, I … Continue Reading

If you’ve been following my quest to savor the world one bite at a time, you’ve likely realized that I took an extended holiday hiatus from berating my current least favorite country.  Before you go supposing that I am a cantankerous curmudgeon, I should point out that I am not one to dwell on the … Continue Reading

…but thankfully I can still type. Before I dish the deets on this South American utopia, I’d like to dedicate this post to my friend Alex, who guided me through Ecuador with her personalized recommendations of what to do while there (“No Lindsay, you would die if you tried to climb that mountain.  How about … Continue Reading
