My first breakfast in America: Oatmeal with Walnuts and Raisins, Blueberry Yogurt and Granola, Pineapple. This morning I could say I had a less pronounced Uncanny Valley effect with the pineapple. It seems strange that seeing a fruit so commonly found in Thailand would reinforce how foreign this country is to me, but the frozen, strangely chewy, cold yet familiarly sweet texture and taste of a fruit I’d eaten fresh my entire life reminded me that even in the age of internet and globalization, the world is very much defined by it’s geography.
