the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Street food

The smell on the streets both night and day in Southeast Asia is a combination of gasoline and spice. Every food stand we passed smelled both the same and somewhat different simultaneously, all of it overwhelmingly rich and full. I disregarded my normal diet completely while away because I found that eating Asian food actually cooked in Asia to be an absolute privilege. I may stick to more bland foods for a few weeks as my stomach gets back to normal, but while I was there I totally indulged and am so glad that I did. Such a marvelous treat.
