Full of Culture and Hungry for Salad?

1

Pancakes, I love Pancakes, and for a while I thought I would never find a pair of great pancakes, dripping with syrup. But after lots of googling, talking to strangers, and  exploring. Eureka !!! I have found THE DUTCH HOUSE OF PANCAKES.

Look at this Little Piece of Heaven:

Yes I Ate This

Lately, there has been one other thing I have been Looking for. Hunting for. Longing for. Far Greater then Pancakes, More Nutritious. It composed  of  crisp lettuces, sometimes tomatoes, sometimes cucumber. Have you guessed what it is?

Still guessing….. come on… it’s a cold dish.

IT’S SALAD.

Yeah if you have no idea what a  salad is, your not alone, the other day I went to some food place somewhere in London. And I saw on the menu, Salad. I asked the guy for some salad, and he gave me a weird look like I asked him to sell me eyeballs, as he stood behind a sign that said the words in big bold letters salad.  I pointed to the sign.

He replied “uh… yes we have that”.

Now I was a little on easy, so I further  investigated “what kind of lettuce do you use, is it iceberg, or romaine  lettuce or something else?”

He Stared Blankly,  as he replied “We have little pieces”

Not fully understanding what I was asking. Then he motioned for his other coworker to show me the lettuce, it was little piece of iceberg, darn it, I was hoping for romaine, or anything else but iceberg.

“No thanks” and I continued my journey….. and have been looking ever since for a tasty salad. I tried many salads but so many just seem to fall flat. So I have been hankering for a delicious, crisp, fresh salad.

I have however been satisfying my thirst for culture on the regular, going to museums, plays, musicals, and storytelling events. London has made me a super fan of museums, each museum cooler then the next. The V & A Museum is awesome because  they have made an effort to make the place as interactive as possible. Ancient pots you can feel the texture with samples they let you touch, you can go into rooms from back in the day, as well as dress up or build a chair.

The Tate Britain is fantastic, for really trying submerge people in the art, and get you lost in it. One  piece that does this is called the Coral Reef. It’s an inside urban Labyrinth that you have to find your way out. In the beginning it scares you, and  you have to use all your logic to find your out. Every room plays to your fears, but once you have made it out you feel accomplished. The Tate Britain, is modern art with bite to it. And I love it.

I have been seeing lots of theatre. I saw Legally Blonde the Musical and that was a great time!!!!!! Can I just say OMG it was amazing, I was doubting it at first but it’s really good. I LOVE IT!!!! I think I going to see it again 🙂

Cheers,
