We clearly have different tastes when it comes to travel food photos. I was thinking National Geographic Moment, someplace exotic and colorful as the perfect destination to enjoy something unusual and delicious. I am sorry to be so critical but the dog, the horse, Chuckie and steak do not really give any sense of place or of travel. The guinea pig photo is out of focus and that leaves the Brazilian juice stand. Unfortunately, the only food in the picture are the pineapple decorations instead of seeing tropical fruit and juices. I glad that these photo made you laugh; I am going to have to work on my sense of humor.

I thought the brazil picture was hilarious until I scrolled down. The dog steals the show.

But I also love the juice stand in Brazil with the 'hotties'. Sorry, couldn't resist

Definitely the dog. Not a chihuahua fan, but this is a great photo.

I LOVE the little dog begging for bacon! He/she reminds me of my treasured "Devil Dog" ceramic planter from my grandmother - same eyes. I also very much like the photo of the beefcake and two cupcakes standing by the street vendor.

I'll have to say I love that silly little dog - though I am a sucker for a horse as well ...
