More interesting thought -- its occured to me a few times now, but isn't it really fascinating that several European empires were founded on the spice trade. We take the spices in our food so much for granted. But the guys bringing back the goods back then were making a killing. The food must have been in a bad bad way. I read that part of the desire was to overcome the smell of rotting food.
