November 2. Day 306. Food for thought

Anyone with a problem with multiculturalism clearly doesn't take the same delight in eating food from all over the globe as I do.
In the past week alone I have consumed cuisine from Thailand, Japan, India, Italy, Tibet, France, Mexico and Australia (yep, a Vegemite sandwich totally counts).
Much of this was prepared in my own kitchen but within walking distance of my place are restaurants from not only these countries but also Germany, Korea, Spain, China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Greece, Turkey and Switzerland (and doubtless others).
So it is unsurprising that the home of  Fiesta Latina is just down the road in West End.
The sights, sounds, smells and most importantly the tastes of  Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Spain and Uruguay were being celebrated in the annual festival.
There was literally dancing in the streets, children's arts and crafts, music, song and lots and lots of food.
Most of the food came from central and south America the Caribbean but children such as five-year-old Alessandra found the international food of children - fairy floss - more to her taste.
