Yummy stuff around the world

From the BBC website, some yummy stuff from Asia.
Anyone know where I can get some camel hump?

On the good side, jamon iberico will be available in the U.S. soon. It's from a particular breed of Spanish hogs that are free-ranged in oak groves. The unsaturated fat in the acorns is deposited directly into the muscle, so the meat feels silky-smooth in your mouth. It's suposed to be the best ham in the world. The only drawback: "The whole legs, which can be pre-ordered now, are $79.00 a pound. That makes the final price of an average 15-pound leg approximately $1,200." Start saving your pennies now.
