    Eating cockroaches: Healing and delicious?

    By David McKenzie JINAN, China (CNN) — I’ve eaten some unusual things on the road. There were salted Mopani worms in Botswana at the hotel buffet (black and squishy); sun-dried nsenene grasshoppers in Uganda (yellow and juicy); whole roasted goat in the desert in Mauritania (delicious), and chicken head and feet soup in Beijing (only unusual if you are not from China).
