This seems almost like cosmic payback for all the previous wondrous trips you've enjoyed. As is so often the case, there are still some small pleasures to be had if you look hard enough for them, but overall it seems like one of the most unpleasant places anyone here's reported on. I shudder to think what kind of "delicacies" you might have encountered--those fish heads in Japan might look good in comparison.
I can imagine you frantically searching for cheap airfares to almost anywhere in Europe when you got back, just to expunge these memories.
