Food as a Criterion

I recently reviewed a list I wrote before deciding to become an expat. It contained the expected Pros and Cons for both living outside the US, and specifically living in the Phils. I rated each item as to how important I thought it would be to me.

One of the items I misjudged was underestimated the importance food would have on my quality of life. Living in the Phils has given me a new appreciation of how too much bad food can motivate prisoners to riot.

I wrote the first draft of this shortly after arriving in Thailand. Didn’t post it because I figured the shock of great food would make me say things about the Phils that were too unkind. I rewrote the second paragraph so it’s now accurately unkind.
