“I liked Malaysia for the food and iced lemon tea. I liked Mongolia for the ranch, for riding horses and milking cows and herding goats. I liked England for the food like Cornish pasties and vinegar on chips. I liked Italy for the pizzas. And I loved the fresh crispy apples off the tree in Bulgaria.”
Here is a boy, who experiences life through his stomach!
To prevent his memories being solely related to food, we proposed another question: what have you learnt this last year or so? He almost got stuck on a foodie train of thought (“Other countries have open air markets”), but managed to digress…”At Angkor Wat when a new group of people took over the temples they would change the carvings to make them into their own gods, or sometimes they even just put a shawl around the statue’s shoulders and that made them new.”
“Before we went away I didn’t know a capital I meant an information centre.”
He was on a roll….
”When Chinese people take a photo they make their fingers into a V.”
“I’d like to go back to Poland in the snow, because it would be interesting to see the differences.”
Plus, we all know how much he loved the kremowka (special cream cake) and sernik (cheese cake) and paczki (doughnuts) and kielbasa (sausages) and pierogi (dumplings) and zapiekanki (pizza breads)…..
