As a 63 year old man, I have a lot of life to look back upon. Born in Landstuhl, lived in Toul, Ft. Stewart, Zama (Sagamihara elementary - still have the yearbook!), Ft. Myer D.C., Berlin (West), Kitzingen, Fulda and Ft. Hood.
If you live on Okinawa, you might have heard about Goya, a local cucumber-like vegetable also known as bitter melon. As the name suggests, this green, bumpy veggie has a bitter taste but is a favorite in the summer season.
Japan is the land of the vending machines, but these are not exclusive to selling soda, coffee, hot tea or even canned soup broths. In Chatan Town, you’ll find what may seem like just another vending machine, but these orange machines don’t sell drinks.
