Super Size Me

I've left Japan - land of skinny people and arrived in the US, where portions are big and food is plenty. Only to find the Koreans had poisoned me en route (I flew with Korean Airlines) and my poor hosts have had to endure me collapsed feverishly on their sofa when not vomiting copiously in the bathroom (they say these things come in threes- see previous blogs from Tajik and Kygyrz!).

Today I am feeling much better, and have found my weight is 8 stone 10 lbs- just in time for those super-size portions down at the mall, I'm salivating now at the prospect of hot fudge sundaes, bagels with cream cheese and just wait till I get to the diner with the maple syrup breakfast pancakes- who says yanks can't do haute cuisine?
