03: What Will We Eat?

After reading a hilarious, cringe-worthy article about the “culinary horrors of Mongolia,” we were curious what us two pescatarians would eat in the meat-loving countries of Central Asia, so my brother and I take a field trip to Cheburechnaya – an Uzbeki restaurant in Queens, NY – to find out. We also give updates on some of the many things we’ve been up to since the last episode, like getting more vaccinations and visas and taking a class to learn emergency first aid. Read more and see photos on my website.

Far From Home is a series, so it’s best to listen to all the episodes in order from the beginning for the story to make the most sense.
