Stephanie Michael McCue Professor John Lynch English 01 6 September 2011 Shark Fin Soup It was the biggest and most exotic meal I had ever eaten. We started with fried tofu, beef with mint, and papaya salad. Then out came the raw shrimp in lime juice (in which I did not partake) and mussels in a spicy broth. All tingling my taste buds and setting my mouth ablaze. Then the whole fish, two for the table of 10 people, and of course rice. Loads of rice. Then came the main event. Shark Fin Soup. I had been told not to refuse and to make a big deal about it. I had been going out of my way to be polite visiting my best friend's father in Thailand. Politeness is key to slipping into the Thai culture. I was bowing and deferring all over the place, and during the course of this meal I was doing more of it then I ever thought possible. I have always been a texture person. Nothing spongy or squishy for me. Then came the Shark Fin Soup.
