My day has been going smoothly so far. I fell asleep pretty late last night and I thought of a lot of possible ways to conserve energy and lower carbon footprint.
When you think at night, somewhat outrageous thoughts tend to come up: should people travel less? should people cut down from leisure traveling by air or any sort of transportation? Should you always eat local food? What if you are at a place where you don’t even recognize its traffic signs…should you go along with what they eat locally? What if you don’t like it? I know there are certain foods in China that a lot of people from the west would rather starve than give it a try.. So what do you all think? We are living in a global community and we can all consider ourselves world travelers, it is really something that we should think about.. don’t you think?
I enjoyed today’s lab to IGA, but there weren’t any local veggies; that really depressed me. I hope they will start taking baby steps towards eating local and supporting local farmers (since they are already charging a higher price than other more mainstream grocery stores).
It’s amazing to see how many different menus we can come up with as a class. It was an impressive and eye-opening learning experience, I’m sure everyone really enjoyed the weather and the trip.
