"I'm allergic to fish, shellfish, peanuts and aubergines" was surely the most ridiculous sentence to come from the mouth of a man who had just signed up to join a cookery course in which every item on the itinerary contained one or more of these foods. And who's allergic to aubergines anyway...!
Today I went on another cookery course. We started with a tour of the market (including the dubios delight of frogs skinned alive, still breathing - sick) before taking a boat downstream to the 'Red Bridge' restaurant and cookery school. The setup was good with a nice dining area, big enough cooking area and a comprehensive herb garden. The clientelle on the course were more Hyacith Bouquet than I was used to, but it was a refrshing change from scruffy backpackers. The group was also larger that I was used to at around 20, but in spite of this it was a great course.
After the course I went back to my first tailors and ordered a winter coat, and with that I underline my tailoring experience!
Im Alex. 22 and counting, just about to embark on 5 months of travelling before starting my first proper post graduation job. Im into my adventure sports - climbing, biking, skiing, diving, sailing, kayaking but this trip is probably going to be more about culture than sport... although I could be swayed! I love cooking (and eating!) and playing the guitar, seeing live music, and drinking alcohol.... full info
