I’ve been sick for a while now, I can’t seem to shake it off! First it started with my tonsils, then I got a nose so blocked I couldn’t taste anything for two days, now my ear hurts. I’ve mostly stayed in bed and rested, but today I thought I’d go to the market and have my favourite ethiopian meal. The weather was good, then sun was so bright it made you squint. Five minutes later, it was POURING with rain and I got soaking wet. Typical english weather.
Admittedly I’ve been eating very badly lately, sooo many sweets and chocolate and candies and cakes. I miss my mom’s cooking. Or rather, I miss having someone take care of me. One of my best friends from Athens is moving in with me in October, maybe we can split the cooking between us. I also plan to take japanese style bento to uni every day, wake up early and prepare something nice. Rice, omelette, inari sushi and tsukemono (japanese pickles) especially umeboshi. Umeboshi is said to prevent bacteria from growing, that’s why they always put one in every bento. Maybe I should invest in a rice cooker. I will look for a cute bento box and a cookbook when I’m in Tokyo.
Only a couple weeks left now until my trip!
