…..for breakfast no less. How does your taste buds respond to that? Fermented cabbage, marinated beef with salsa all rolled up in a tortilla – meant to be the Korean-Mexican breakfast treat.

We are slowly merging and integrating our cultures. We will do so in marriage. We will do so in food, and soon enough, there the cultural identities will slowly dissolve. We will truly become citizens of the planet.

If you are ever around, and you want to try this delicacy, I’ll go with you.
