While in China w/o Barb I purchased a sack of durian candy at an airport 
and passed out to fellow travelers. Most tasted it and immediately spit it 
out. Not a good advertisement for the fruit. There was a couple form Indonesia 
in the group and they likes it and shared many with them. Brought some home 
and frankly threw the last few out.
