It took me far longer than it takes them, mine didn't look quite as nice as theirs and they didn't really let me drop them into the frying pan full of scalding hot oil (probably a wise decision on their part) but I still did it! I am quite proud, probably far prouder than I should be but coming from someone whose cooking skills extend as far as making stir-fry and homemade macaroni and cheese, this feels like a pretty major accomplishment.

I didn't wake up today thinking I would know how to make spring rolls by the end of it but therein lies the appeal of travel: You never know what kind of new things you might get to experience.
