Actually that was pork roast. I don't know why no one eats pork. Actually I suppose it's for religious reasons, but I never actually knew anyone who was so devout that they didn't eat pork. If they were at all devout, they just didn't eat any meat...

Anyway we only went on one big loop this morning, and that was bloody well good enough for me. Afterwards was lunch, then a nap, then dinner, then jacuzzi. Really the only way to go, I tell you. I also bought some postcards for the Gang of Four (you know who you are) and spent some time writing them. Hopefully I'll mail them tomorrow.

did I mention how much hellish pain I was in? I can barely stand up. not to mention the mental tension going on with Nick and his parents. Oh man...

My family are Christians that don't eat pig.

They're evangelists. What can you expect.

Pig taboos

Don't eat pork because I don't like the taste but I will sometimes eat bacon.

Don't you get interspecies transmission of disease if you live in close proximity to pigs in a hot country? I'm no biologist but I assumed that was the origin of the taboo. I think I got the idea because of the transmission of new flu varieties from chicken to human in the cramped conditions of Hong Kong.
