THE snail

For everyone who asked for a picture of the nightmare-inducing raw snail I ate in Japan, all I can say is, you asked for it (please note, when I say that I 'ate it' I had a nibble of the rubbery bit at the top, where the toothpick is, then drank half a litre of sake):
When I showed this to my Dad, after he finished gagging, he said "I can't believe you would put that near your face, you disgusting person."

This whole thing (which I found quite by chance, looking for something quite different) is simply stunning writing, Zoe! If you haven't considered doing it for a living, maybe you should...

Put me out of my misery, though - a 23-hour flight home from NY to where? Australia?

Goodness MikeF, so sorry that I'm responding to this three and a bit years late! Yes, Australia!

Wow! Good to hear from you, Zoe - well, they do say better late than never ;-)
