This year, we traveled around the world, getting high on gonads in the Arctic Circle, eating lamb in inner Mongolia, fishing on an exploding lake in the DR Congo, and even hanging out with Fidel Castro's former chef in Havana.
Ask the average Westerner what they know about Tajikistan, and they'll probably draw a blank. (Is it a country? Isn’t there a war going on there?) Which made finding out more about qurutob, its national dish, even more interesting.
