Yes, LL, watermelon is great for the day. But it was in Cambodia many years ago, 40 to be exact. I wanted to take a look around Angkor Wat so rented a bicycle for two days (its a large place). Since there was no water (or food) on site, I bought a large watermelon each day strapped to my bike. Worked great supplemented by water buffalo jerky. I wouldn't want to carry it on my back though.

Gregg, when we were young we did things that would be considered stupid, or not advisable by todays standards. In my teens I used to go off for days into the countryside without food, water or money. When I was thirsty I drank from a stream or pond: when hungry I would dig up a root, steal an apple, or eat ears of corn: when I got tired I got a lift. I have slept in barns and haystacks in what I stood up in. Got soaked to the skin and freezing cold. Guess what...I am still here and feeling perky.

Yes, Oldun, I don't mind the occasional raw turnip, but I've never resorted to a MuckDonalds.

Dear Forum, I felt compelled to share with you the wonderful picnic food that I enjoyed today. I am currently in India and asked the hotel to prepare a pic nic for a jaunt to a beach and was sent off with 'missi roti' which are savoury pancakes/rotis of chickpea flour, chillis, spices and corriander, a few pickles and rissoles made with spinach, rice dumplings with spicey coconut sambal and nuts.

It was a most deserving place to savour it.....

Greetings from India!
Hare Om!

Goodness Madame....what an exotic creature you are !
It reminds me of early breakfasts in Gangotri where a feast of paratha, pickles and chai fortifies one for a day of high altitude adventure.
England has a long way to go before ridding itself of unimaginative,prepackaged, mediocre snack food that so many guzzle with indiscernable acceptance....including me.
