Hungry Planet: What The World Eats

My parke_matrusister and my friend ANIMEDUDESamil came up to visit me for Anime North. After the convention, we went to the Ontario Science Centre. In the hallway to the exhibits, they were displaying the photos from Hungry Planet: What The World Eats.

The food is mostly prepared on the weekends and stored in plastic bags, so it can be grabbed on the way to work each morning.
