Off topic: Bizarre tour operator complaint

"On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all."
- A tour operator received this complaint from a customer!

For the Western readers: Incidentally "curry" is a term with very specific meaning in India, when it is used at all. And that's completely different from its meaning in the West. Western "curry" seems to be catch-all term meaning any kind of Indian food - or at least a large cross-section of it; locals, of course, differentiate individual dishes by name.
