AUSTRALIAN FRIENDS in ITALY
It wasn't until we got to Maori on the Amalfi Coast of Italy that one of our Australian traveling companions broke out the jar of Vegemite.
She offered it to us Americans, and to the other Aussies along for the trip, and the two New Zealanders, too.
I spread it like peanut butter in a thick slab on a crispy slice of bread and bit into it. Don't worry I won't make that mistake again.
A fellow traveler followed, but instead spread it like you'd spread a light coat of butter on bread when you don't like butter. Now, that's the way you enjoy Vegemite.
Sure fooled me.
