  • Brazil
    on Jul 11, 2012
    Brasil or Brazil? I never really understood why English speaking countries insist on using the letter 'Z' while Brazilians use the letter 'S'. Most sources agree that 'Brasil' is correct in Portuguese, while 'Brazil' is correct in English. To test th...
  • Botswana
    on Mar 21, 2012
    Once again I have neglected my blog. When people ask me what country I am up to they invariably laugh that I am still in the B's. In my defence, there are a LOT of nations beginning with B, including of course Botswana.The land surface of Botswana is...

    on Dec 14, 2011
    I have just come back from the Christmas break, and while Foodysseus may have been ignored for the better part of a month, I have certainly been busy sampling food, drink, and more food from around the world (unfortunately for the waistline, cheese w...
  • Bolivia
    on Nov 25, 2011
    Bolivia is a landlocked country smack bang in the middle of South America. It is the poorest nation on the continent, but it attracts thousands of thrill-seeking young backpackers each year. Backpackers to Bolivia are recognised by their alpaca beani...
  • Bhutan
    on Oct 21, 2011
    There is a saying in Bhutan: "If it does not make you sweat, then why bother to eat?" This brought me much joy when I read it, and much chagrin to my long suffering wife who is not as enthusiastic about chilli as I am. While I am not yet ready to go...
  • Benin
    on Oct 14, 2011
    The first thing I am told about Benin on Wikipedia is that it is not to be confused with the Kingdom of Benin, which is an unrelated pre-colonial African state in what is now Nigeria. This is disappointing because the Kingdom of Benin, as you can see...

    on Sep 14, 2011
    "There must be something wild and wonderful in a country such as this, and we're the men to find out!" This quote from Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World described the picturesque Central American nation so well that it inspired the naming of B...
  • Belgium
    on Aug 6, 2011
    When anyone thinks of Belgium they always think of one thing: Jean-Claude Camille Fran├žois Van Varenberg more commonly known as Jean-Claude Van Damme. As this blog is about food, I will not digress with a compare and contrast analysis of Univer...
  • Belarus
    on Jul 29, 2011
    We didn't learn much about Belarus growing up. During my childhood years it was a constituent republic of the Soviet Union, and was locked safely behind the Iron Curtain. For this, I am forgiving myself for having next to no knowledge of the country.
  • Barbados
    on Jul 15, 2011
    As it has turned out my predictions about the forming of new nations has turned out to be true (see previous post). Thankfully for me it was not the Abkhazians who earned their self-autonomy, deserved as it no doubt is. It was in fact...
