I used to turn my nose up on the bus journeys when they tried selling rat and squirrel at 8am for breakfast

Laos what a beautiful place

"Caterpillars are rich in Vitamin B12" if you can't get marmite or you hate it, try the substitute instead.

Sy,

I have eaten rats, the bones are fiddly, but the meat tastes great, lamb used to be my favourite meat of choice, rat now supercedes it, feeling hungry now, where's my torch...

My wife is from the south so they don't eat rats but I did try monkey meat :( as we have a friend that farms exotic meats and sells them for eating.

I wish I could say it was horrible but it was lovely (and I suppose I have got the nearest you can to eating a family member :eek:)
