The million dollar question is, “What has King Foodie been eating all week?”
Surprisingly, Joe ate very moderately during our vacation. I was perplexed by this, and spent a few nights tossing and turning, wondering “Why? Why? Why?”
On the plane ride home, I decided to ask Mr. Foodie “Why?” out of concern that he was not feeling right. I threw out some possibilities, “Sun poisoning?” “Lack of sleep?” “Too much rum punch?” “Were you bitten by a strange jungle bug?” Joe responded, “It was probably just due to the heat and being so active.” For example, when struggling up the rocky, 2619 ft Gros Piton, out of breath, covered in a mix of dirt, mud, rain, and sweat, your snack is a banana and piece of bread, not a hodge-podge of gourmet delicacies equivalent to a four course meal- Yup, even if you are our favorite foodie, Joe.
Here is a photo of Joe enjoying “local jungle M&M’s” aka cocoa straight from the tree- many islanders favorite treat!
