Local Flavors of Pittsburgh PA

[flickrgallery setid=”72157631244337184″ limit=”20″]

With the good memories of a work visit to Pittsburgh back in 2005, I recently went back again in April for a long weekend to see the city and to also visit Fallingwater. It’s an eclectic, environmentally friendly city with lots of architecture and good food. Having 3 rivers that transect the city helps to make it feel like you’re always close to the water, which I love.

The bird photos are from the National Aviary. I recommend it, if you like to see birds and penguins up close and personal.

Do You Dare to Try the World’s Hottest Pepper?

I LOVE hot and spicy foods. I’ve been known to get strange looks when asking for hot ‘sauce’ at restaurants, but I’m not sure if I’m ready to try the Bhut Jolokia, better known as the ghost chili pepper, deemed the world’s hottest pepper. This is especially the case when it’s being considered to be used as a weapon by the Indian Army. I like the sound of it though. Like a true pepper or spicy food lover, you love it because it hurts.
