        Jul 28 2012: Believe me, I would try just about anything that's edible.I remember my trip to China where I sampled an Uyghur delicacy which was salted goat's leg.It looked revolting at first and once I tasted it, tears flowed from my eyes due to the saltiness of the goat.Then, a Chinese man sitting beside me started to laugh at me.We instantly became friends.
