The climate is harsh, the soil is arid, rains are rarely seen, and people are poor. All these factors limit the amount of goods and what you can get from the land. But despite all these adversities, you can get in Egypt perfect fruits. Ripe, sweet, fleshy and juicy.
Colorful morning and night markets; street food stalls; local vendors; ice cream sold from a bicycle; grilled food from in front of the owner's house - that is what makes local street food so unique. Add to it local flavors and freshness and you will get a perfect mix.
When I think about Sapporo, I think about Winter Olympics in 1972. And there is much more to do and see than only a ski jump. One of the towns that are close to Sapporo is Otaru. A nice, little town, with great buildings, some remaining historical architecture and brewery!
As time was still good for Lebanese Beaujolais Nouveau, we had a chance to taste jeune wines from Château Musar. Musar Jeune Blanc, Rouge and Rosé are all bottled and labeled in the same way. The label is simple, minimalistic in the design and elegant.
One of traditional and loved sweets in Lebanon is halva. And believe me – it is really good and worth trying, even if you do not like sweets very much. Well, yes, it is sweet. It is even very sweet, but also delicious.
