  • QUOTES (3)

    • Andrew: What's next for me? Pigeon pie in Morocco? Haggis in Scotland? Maybe mangrove worms in the Philippines? But you know what I say, if it looks good, eat it!

    • Andrew: Anyone got some marshmallows and sticks? We could make smores! (standing in view of Ecuador's volcanoes)

    • Andrew: (eating cow stomach soup) And I'll tell ya, nothing looks stranger than the outside of a stomach with all of those little stalactites hanging off it, but it just melts in your mouth. It's so tender. Absolutely delicious.

  • NOTES (3)

    • In an interview, Andrew claims that he was not looking forward to eating the coconut grubs in this episode. He had just eaten them in the Philippines and thought they were gross. However, in Ecuador the indigenous tribe removed the grub's stomach. This made all the difference, and Andrew enjoyed his second taste of coconuts grubs.
