|Grand Marnier Slush|
We started in France. Our first order of business was to get a drink, a Grand Marnier slush to be exact. This drink has Grand Marnier, Grey Goose orange vodka, orange juice, and rum. Very delicious (but kind of priced too high at $9.86 + tax - $10.51).
From France, our next stop was in Japan. I did not purchase anything here, but was able to taste a bit of the Saki sampler and my favorite was the Hana Fuga, which is a peach flavored sparkly Saki. I like my drinks sweet and fruity, and this fit the bill!

Meanwhile, while I was sampling my Polish food, friends were congregating in Singapore, where someone tried the Lemongrass Chicken Curry (a gluten-free option, by the way), and in Germany, where there were beer samplers involved as well as noshes on Bratwurst. I am not a huge curry fan, and I think by now all my blog readers know how I feel about sausage so I did not sample any of these but when we got to Africa and a group member purchased the (also Gluten-free) South African Bobotie (involving turkey and mushrooms) I did have a bite and enjoyed it.
After leaving Africa are next stop was in South Korea and I had a sip of the Bahae Blackberry Wine and thought it was delish.
I cannot remember if anyone got anything in China, but I don't think so. However, at the new Farm Fresh booth which features local delicacies and emobodies the Farm to Table movement, I tried a bite of the Pepper Bacon Hash (good) and I remember someone else trying the Yard Bird and saying it was wonderful.
From there we journeyed to Mexico, where we entered the Tequila Cave. Everyone but me ordered some kind of Margarita, ranging from cucmber to one that also contained Rumchata. I can only have limited amounts of tequila, and because my margarita from Italy contained some, I did not chance it in Mexico. We also went on the boat ride there, which is just a nice way to cool off on a hot day and sit down and relax for a few minutes. As we were leaving some group members ordered tacos and claimed them to be scrumptious.

At the Desserts and Champagne Booth, my friend and I each got a Frozen S'mores, which was a great sweet sipper that fixed my sweet tooth.
In Canada a group member purchased the beer cheese soup and I had a taste of it and really enjoyed it. In Ireland, my friend got the Warm Chocolate Pudding with a liquor custard sauce and that was just dreamy. I would eat that again in a heartbeat!

And that brings us back to France, where we started. While people were ordering more slushies before we hit the road, I hopped over to Brazil, and purchased one of my favorite things, the Pao de Queijo, which is Brazilian Cheese Bread. A great finish to a great day.
