Each week Carmi at Written, Inc. has challenged readers with a theme for photographic inspiration. This week the photographic challenge continues with the theme DIFFERENT.
If you're driving down 8th Street in Koreatown, Los Angeles, you might see this large vertical sign with a picture of a grasshopper on it.
What's this all about?
If you're looking for something different, you can stop in here, at this Oaxacan market. They sell chapulines, a delicacy served as a snack or appetizer. The chapulines are toasted on a hot griddle, and seasoned with garlic, salt and lemon.
Some people pop them in their mouths like snacks, and crunch away. Others wrap them in tortillas. How do I like them?
Jeez, people! Are you kidding? Me, eat grasshoppers? Nuh uh!
