We humans are fortunate beings to express our senses! However, it is a debatable topic whether animals can taste or not, let us keep it aside. In addition, humans are the only ones to express it, and the evidence being the cuisines from around the world!
I have a strong desire to explore the world and I feel rejuvenated with fresh things to see, hear, smell and taste. In addition, I strongly feel that food has a major influence on cultural and geographic differences. If you want to experience a country or a region, you need to eat what is authentic there!
