Last Sunday, I took my boyfriend out for dim sum (small dishes of steamed and fried dumplings, among other things) for the first time. And he loved it!
Being at dim sum is an experience in itself. It's loud and fragrant, and waiters come one after another with carts and trays of shrimp dumplings, pork buns, vegetables, custards, and a million other things in cute steamer baskets. If you close your eyes, it almost feels like you're in the middle of a street-vendor paradise back in China.
Which made me think—we spend all this time talking about honeymooning in the U.S. and Europe, on a beach and or in the mountains, which are all great, but I don't think I've ever mentioned traveling in Asia. I have a friend planning a big trip to Laos in a few months. Even Matt Lauer went there during his Where In the World Is Matt Lauer tour earlier this year. A collegue has made it her life goal to go to an ashram in India one day, and another is backpacking through Cambodia this very minute! Are any of you planning a trip to Asia? Where are you visiting specifically and how long are you staying there? I've never been, so please write in and let me know so I can live vicariously through you!
