Gifts from London

Stijn brought me two nice gifts from London. A very sweet umbrella and a pack of crumpets. I discovered crumpets when I lived and worked in Nottingham for a couple of months. I think their the best with butter and sugar. What ‘abroad dish’ do you like?

Two Germanys

And things have changed since then: the EEC became the EU, two Germanys became one and a Karl-Marx-Stadt is called Schemnitz now. The [...]
