Food part 3

26 March 2006
OK, now this is what I’m talking about. We had lunch at a little local falafel stand today. The food was really good and pretty cheap. It was fun watching the guy deep fry the falafel balls in between making the sandwiches. This evening we traveled to a spot outside of the city in the Judean desert and had dinner in a tent that was supposed to simulate a dinner during Abraham’s time. I think the atmosphere was more period than the food was. We did cook our own pita bread over a fire, though. The rest of the meal was served while sitting on cushions in the tent at a very low table. The food came in courses and consisted of a choice of four or five different “salads” which were more like collections of vegetables with vinegar on them, a main course of herbed chicken and meatballs with saffron rice and a dessert of dried fruit including dates, apricots and raisins. It was quite the feast!

    Sounds like a great time, bro! Have fun in Rome — our highlight was the Vatican Museum by far. Wow!!!
