Waiting to read your next installments. Many years ago, newly engaged to my Sri Lankan sweetheart, my bland, German-American tastebuds smacked up against “thair mulaha”—dried red chilies, soaked in yogurt and redried, to eat as a pickle. I think my eyelashes fell out. It was not the custom to serve water with the meal, or to have napkins on the table, and I still remember the acute discomfort of trying to talk past my streaming eyes and dripping nose. 25 years later, I can beat my husband on the heat scale any day. 05.15.09 | 12:51 PM ET

Interesting video, I also read the article.  I do like hot n’ spicy food, but my body doesn’t. 

This would make a great travel writing niche.  Travel writers who enjoy foods that are HOT could travel the USA and the world to find them and the ingredients that make your lips smack and cheeks turn red!
