    Raw Milk Vending Machine and other oddities abroad

    Part of the year I live in a small town in northern Italy that happens to have a RAW milk vending machine, supplied by the town's organic, biodynamic dairy farm.

    There is no 24 hour culture here - supermarkets close in the evening, almost all stores are closed on Sundays, restaurants open for only a few critical hours around lunch and dinnertime, and pizzerias ONLY open for dinner, so lunchtime pizza is unheard of here.

    However, here in our little town, you can always count on the raw milk vending machine when you just have to get some raw milk, yogurt, or mozzarella for a poorly planned late-night dinner!

    What awesome, awful, or unique food-related things have you gotten to experience abroad?

    I was shocked when I moved to WA from Idaho and there aren't any bait machines here. I was like, "Honey, you want to make a million dollars?"
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Just so you don't get the idea that Italy is a TOTAL food utopia...yes, those are hamburgers and hot dogs in the vending machine.
