58). Kids, Don't Try This at Home    Port Douglas, Australia

The first time I heard of "vegemite" was about 20 years ago in the song, "Down Under."  I didn't know what it was but it sounded delicious.  When I got to Australia, I learned otherwise.  It smells like yeast, looks like tar, and tastes like salt.  One evening, an Aussie friend suggested that I spread it very thinly (doh!).  When applied correctly, it's actually not too bad.
