This camp sounded like lots of fun, well, without the slamming of the finger... :)

Amy

Yeah, the slamming the finger part must have sucked. Luckily kids recover quickly!

paula

looks like a great time! and I know what you mean about people expecting you to be a certin way because of where you're from. I am in Southern Calif. and do not surf or like the sun! :)

Mom

You don't seem destined to ski. Remember how you missed the ski instruction for Camp Tawingo? If you go back next, insist on taking instruction - you'll love it.

hey amy,
Akemashite Omedetou
looks like you had a blast and I too know about stereotypes. Being Indian does not mean that we eat curry 24/7..
On an aside, what you reading right now? I read "Food in History" after seeing it on your site and quite enjoyed it. So angling for some other suggestions :-)

Amy

Mom, no I don't remember missing the ski instruction. What happened? I do remember Camp Tawingo though, and how much I sucked at skiing. I guess the missed instruction would explain that...

Paula and Sejal, those stereotypes must be annoying. I'm kind of lucky. Although most Japanese have an image of Canada as a cold, snowy place (year round!), there isn't really a particular stereotype about Canadians themselves.

Sejal, I highly recommend the book "Salt" by Mark Kurlansky. His "Cod", listed in my "Recently Read" column, is also good. Another recommended "Recently Read" book is Margaret Visser's "Much Depends on Dinner". For non-food writing I really enjoyed Jared Diamond's "Guns, Germs, and Steel".

Sejal

thanks for the suggestions Amy, shall try and get my hands on the books.
Have you read "Hungry Planet: What the world eats"? I read an article on it and seemed quite interesting but a little too expensive for my budget..

Amy

It's on my wishlist!
I've come to think of any English-language book as a luxury, and they ALL seem expensive to me! But good news- I just checked Amazon and the book is currently on sale for $26.40US!
