The $20 Kebab

Yes, really. In Norway, Alesund to be exact, this passes for that well known English (yes, English!) post-pub-crawl institution, a donner kebab. That's right, there are chips ('fries' to those from the States) in that polystyrene package. It doesn't even come in a pita bread with optional hot-sauce. But the real kick in the preverbials comes when you look at how much one of these sets you back. 100 krone, or £10, or $20.

Eric and I ate it on a park bench, and shooed away pigeons as Eric yelled "For $20, you're getting NOTHING! I GET IT ALL!" Yes.

Hi, Stacey sent me. Really great photos! I can't get enough of them. I'd say you are really lucky to see all these sights in the world!
