One of my biggest pleasures while traveling is: Food!
Especially Street Food.
Street food is obtained from a streetside vendor, a portable stall or small stand (like a hot dog stand in the US, or “kitchen carts” in Asia). It is often regional or local “fast food” to take away, although some vendors also put up stools and small tables on the sidewalk for clients to sit and eat.
Prepared on the go, in 2 minutes, it’s the best way to taste local flavors and mix in with the crowd.
Unfortunately, in “civilized” countries, it’s becoming less frequent to find street food vendors, mostly because of safety and health concern. Many people still doubt the cleanliness of these stalls.
In my case, I’d rather focus on the benefits of street food:
Things I love today:
The smell of coffee
The sight of lanterns against the moon
The sound of a marching band in the morning
The taste of burgers with friends
The feel of my body during Tai Chi
