I am currently home (Houston, TX), but as I mentioned I would be writing about things going on here along with a few post I had left to write about my adventures in Central America & Mexico. This is one I couldn’t complete on the road because it would never allow me to load the video.
I’m not sure if you remember a while ago I wrote about the “Best Carne Asada Concept Ever in Oaxaca” well that is not the only thing I ate while I was there. When you are in Oaxaca and exploring the beautiful colorful markets you are bond to walk by the many cricket stands they have. I had just met up with Erica & Shaun from Over Yonderlust and they had told me how they had just ate some before arriving in Oaxaca. I then knew I had to eat one before leaving Oaxaca. I also knew eating bugs and critters is something every backpacker should do at some point in their travels. On my 3rd day there I finally worked the nerve to do so and it was all caught on video. Here is the video (thanks Erica & Shaun for shooting it and helping me out)… Hope y’all enjoy it as I make a fool out of myself.
So after eating it I have to be honest it wasn’t that bad. It kind of tasted like paper and nothing more (yes as a kid I would eat paper). Now after watching the video I can’t believe I licked my fingers… jajajaja. I must of really liked it. I know this was the 1st bug I ever ate but won’t be the last. Even though it may take me a while to work up to doing it I am always up for new things. So tell me have you eaten any bugs? If so what bugs have you eaten?
