weisswurst-bestellen.jpg
The most cliché thing in South-Eastern Germany = Bavaria:
Weisswurst with pretzel, sweet mustard and a beer (you can eat it in Munich in the English Garden underneath the Chinese Tower). Eating the "Weißwurst" correctly is done by "zuzeln" (a rare German word), kind of sucking it and it's the only sausage you do not order in pairs despite being served in numbers of two. There's even the "Weißwurst"-equator dividing the country.

Wow... delicious... Not sure how big that serving actually is... but... hmm... really beautiful.

Oh... and I have heard of the German style roast pork knuckles...

You can rent RPGs in Cambodia? awesome!!
The video below clarify your question. I remember I saw a price tag somewhere (tourist company? I can't remember) that an RPG round cost US$80. Guns/launchers are always free as long as you buy rounds from them. I last time we went there was quite some years ago. We got our own gun and buy bullets from black market, very cheap, made in Vietnam, ultra low quality, up to 30% defective rate.

Actually... what do you meant by 30% defective rate? Does the defective rounds unable to be fired from the rifle and guns only or will it actually blows up and cause injury to the shooter? If it was the second, I would rather spend more money on good rounds... the idea of my face that close to the firing chamber and the round exploding is actually not too desirable.

30% defective rate means 3 of 10 round doesn't fire at all. Sometime we call that "stinky round". Even for the first reason, you should better spend more money on good rounds. In Cambodia, and even in Vietnam, the type -54 is still so popular due to it long range and power. Rounds are available from Russia, China and Vietnam. I don't know about Russian rounds, but rounds made in China cost about US$1.5 each (price from black market) while a box of Vietnamese rounds (70 rounds) costs around US$10 or so. Some said half of the box are defective. I just rate it 30% :p. The remaining non-defective rounds would harm the barrel seriously due to design flaw of the projectile. Some call it "spark round" due to the spark clearly seen from the muzzle when fired. Furthermore, there's been one case that two policeman die while fighting a robber due to their K-54 didn't fire. You really can't save this money.

Here is a classic Argentine comfort food (one of my favorites): Milanesas con pure de papas. Which is a breaded meat (beef or chicken) with mashed potatos
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!


Of all the typical foods in Argentina, the milanesa is one of the most popular. The milanesa is like the hamburger of Argentina, and it is very popular with children as well as adults. Milanesas are battered thin cut strips of beef from the round of the cow (near the top of the back legs). They can also be made from chicken or fish. The egg wash includes herbs, and after the meat is passed through the egg wash it is covered in bread crumbs. Milanesas can be fried or baked in the oven based on preference. They are almost always accompanied by french fries and fried eggs. In the summer people like to eat milanesas with fresh salad and tomatoes.

This travel video has some very real takes of Buenos Aires. We are now experiencing an incredible influx of Chinese tourists. Almost all are from Taiwan.

So this is like an Argentinean way of a chicken fried steak. A chicken fried steak is beef cooked and battered like fried chicken.
