Photo for Keep Trying Goat, It Will Get Better

Someone I met on my trip (credentials: she cites Chipotle as “the thing she misses second-most about America”) told me that the first three times I tried roasted goat, a staple of Maasai celebrations, I wouldn’t like it, but after the fourth time, I’d understand why it deserves to be up there with all the other special-occasion foods. She was about right – it took some courage to go back up there the second time I was offered some, and even more to keep chewing the third time (goat’s a little rubbery), but I stuck with it. By the time I got back to the U.S., Fourth of July barbecues seemed lacking.
