I'm in Japan right now and am having some problems communicating at restaurants with the little Japanese I know. It took me a while to figure out that "glutenous" rice doesnt actually contain gluten and just means its sticky. Does anyone have any tips about eating while on vacation with VERY non-american food? I dont just mean Japan but foreign countries in general.

Thanks,

Matt

Well the only advice I can think of is before leaving to get a gluten-free dining card translanted into the languages you need. Some of them are already available on the internet (I can't remember where but I do remember seeing them), but I can't imagine it would be too hard to get them in any language.

Since you seem to have internet access, I'd look for a restaurant card that you can use to help you. The same rules apply - stick to the simplest things possible (steamed vegetables, rather than ones in a sauce, for instance). Also, if you have *any* friends/aquaintances/hotel-staff that speak english, see if they can help you write something down. *something* is better than nothing.
