Is Watching Richard a Hardship?

This month Business Traveller goes to Kazakhstan to report on how businessmen cope with hardship posts.

Richard delivers some choice quips when discussing how to deal with unfamiliar cusine served by one's host while on assignment.

QUEST: And coming up after the break, they thought they were giving you a treat. Instead, they turned your stomach. How to feast when you can't face the food.
(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

QUEST: Welcome back to Kazakhstan.

James Mitchner (ph) once wrote that if you ignore the local customs and reject the local food, then you might as well have stayed at home.

But here in Almaty, it's a great honor and delicacy to present the guest with a sheep's head. Now, I don't want to be rude and I certainly don't want to offend, but I don't think I can carry this one off. So what do I do?"

What would you serve Richard is he dined with you?

I certainly won't be serving him Haggis...
