6. KGB Espionage Museum
There's a certain charm to the old low-tech, mechanical espionage devices that makes them fun to see. Today the average person has more sophisticated espionage capabilities than the KGB had when the Soviet Union broke up at the end of the 1980s. People often have homes filled with hidden cameras and audio recording devices, and can track each other with the GPS devices that nearly eveyone willingly (or unwittingly) carries. It used to be a major operation to equip homes with recording devices and cars with GPS trackers.

Now it's only necessary to access the devices most people already have. Cars and phones can be remotely tracked by anyone, computer cameras and mics can be hacked, allowing users to be watched and listened to. Everything people do online is accessible. Alexa, are you listening?
3 4. I believe bouillon (spelling?) has a lot of salt in it.

(I don't mind salted caramel though!)

2. All manner of "fries" from the popular fast food joints.

It is not that I haven't tried, they are just utterly tasteless reservoirs of oil and all sorts of funny smells. The "I don't know why" part mostly relates to the other people that do like them. I don't know why.

:cool:

I’m getting there slowly. I’ll let you know when I’m there.

You need a Five Guys excursion! They source all their spuds from a small district in northern Idaho and ship the taters to each store without any processing or freezing. The spuds are cut at the store and they then use peanut oil for frying them TWICE for the optimal soft texture inside a crispy exterior. I’m getting the Jones for an order of them just by describing them and I ate some last night!

The closest Five Guys location from where I am is about 160 km away, but it is conveniently placed on my way to several places I visit. Who knows, I might surprise myself yet.

With that said, I understand your disgust at the tripe soup. Many people are like that when it comes to animal innards. There is the St. John Smithfield restaurant that specialises in that sort of food, however, so there are people that love it (yours truly being one of them). The Greeks also have it, as do some Middle Eastern countries.
