yes, Karen is already on another continent…bummer.
I hadn’t planned on blogging yet because: 1) I’m still in the U.S. and 2) we can easily communicate on a daily basis. However, what happened tonight changes this.
see, I was wandering the street with a map and a list of potential restaurants looking for dinner. I walked by one of the restaurants two times before I decided thrice is a charm. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was an Israeli? Jewish? [man, i still get confused on those terms] establishment. I’m positive I was the only goy. I overhead one family gathering where the conversation reminded me of our pre-wedding gatherings, “so glad you could be with us in the States…”. The complimentary food looked familiar, too – you know, those light, fushia slices of some kind of vegetable [hey, i even heard a non-goy wonder aloud what it was!] in one bowl, sliced califlower, carrots, celery [?] and olives in another.
I wanted to Tilapia patties that came with a special, spicy sauce. But, they have a run on that offering and were out of stock. So, I had beef stew – go figure! The mashed potatoes were calling my name. It was delicious [and i didn’t use my knife].
Anyhow, the point of this is that, somehow, I likely ate similarly to how Karen ate on her first full day on another continent.
