TextSo you feel a little strange at cocktail parties. Your friends jabber on about mutual funds, car leases and football games. You, on the other hand, want to discuss the pros and cons of female circumcision, the relative merits of Chinese- vs. Bulgarian-made AK-47s, the quality of polo played at Chitral vs. Gilgit, or even the archaeological merits of Nemrut Dagi. Your friends think you are talking about a new rock group and then slowly fade to the opposite corner. Seems like you need to find the right social circle. Well, take heart. There are actually clubs for adventurers. Obviously, these groups have their share of toupee-wearing, bring-'em-back-alive liars, but you can probably find someone who can engage you in a spirited discussion about which side of the Rift Valley their ancestors came from in Swahili
TextThe menu? With Tappas type stuff in that environment I'd certainly do every exotic 'aphrodeshiac' type appetizer I could find from oysters to ground rhino horn and monkey balls to appeal to the "adventurer's club" euro-trash swingers and sugar-baby wannabes you're almost certain to attract.
