I'm fantasizing that my portfolio has shot through the roof and that I sell off a chunk of it to finance a tour of the globe's hot pepper hot spots. But where do I go?
I know of certain places:
Sichuan Province, China
But where else?
Is there a particular province or city in Thailand that is particularly famous for its peppers and its spicy cuisine?
What about Africa? I know that peppers are well loved on that continent, but I don't know where Africa's epicenter of heat is.
The same goes for South America. I suspect Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia offer that continent's biggest capsicum bang, but I'm not sure.
And what about Korea? Is North Korea a more torrid zone than South? Do the coastal folk take more to the heat than those on the interior?
I'm eyeing the ticker as we speak...
