How can food spices be either an obstacle or an aid to blending into a new culutre?
If you prefer to eat highly spiced or seasoned foods, you might not want to eat the foods that are popular in your new culture. I knew a Vietnamese man who lived in the U.S. for a few years, but moved back to Vietnam. One of his reasons was that he didn't like American food. On the other hand, foods from many cultures have become popular all over the world. A daughter-in-law from Thailand lived with a friend for a few weeks and fixed many Thai foods. My friend loved it!! :-)
