I go for Dim Sum or other Chinese food to the San Gabriel Valley at least once a month. I like trying ethnic and new, trendy restaurants.
In the past few years I have been to Bhutan, Myanmar, India, Morocco, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Laos, Iceland, Japan . I get around, been to over 60 countries.
Food - Cookies, Chinese Cuisines, Middle Eastern Food
Books - too many to list
But a hot shower in the morning is nice.
