…small fry

"When I first went to Japan as an "alien" in the 1980s, my British palate was confronted with all manner of strange food and I reached the hasty conclusion that the Japanese couldn't cook for toffee. As a young banker fresh off the boat I sought refuge in Indian restaurants or in one of the few affordable French and Italian places introduced by like-minded culinary hostages the locals could at least boil spaghetti and had a ketchup-based sauce called "Napolitan".

During my first stint in Japan, despite the massive differences in cuisine and a firm conviction that seaweed and sparrows shouldn't be eaten, I came to the conclusion that the Japanese and the British were very much alike in many ways:

They are an island nation that historically fell out with their neighbours. The animosity is shared as their neighbours dislike them accordingly…"

Yep, another resource for the two to battle over in the region, though the Chinese are sending their fleets far and wide over the Pacific as well.

A major fishing fleet is working near the Galapagos Islands, and causing consternation with many South American countries who fear they'll wipe out the fish stocks there like they've done in other areas, causing them to have to sail so far away for more productive areas.
