Coming Home

Christmas – for those who don’t live with their families, it’s usually a time of coming home, coming together. And also it’s a time of traveling.

Sadly, when you have to rely on such companies like Deutsche Bahn, it is mostly as well a time of waiting…

However, I still try to enjoy the way home. And in the faces of your fellow travelers you can see – they are as well.

Where People Eat

What I love about travelling is trying new kinds of food. Hence I have seen many different places, where people eat. An interesting one I came across in Baños, Ecuador.

Strolling trough the town, I had seen many people entering something that from the outside looked like a storage building. I couldn’t resist to follow them and check it out. Surprisingly, I ended up in a market/restaurant.

In one part of the warehouse merchants sold fruits, vegetables, meat and fish.

The other part of the building was filled with tiny kitchens. Assigned to each of these kitchens was a table right in front.

For me, this was a concept unlike everything I had seen before. Each of these kitchens prepared food only for one group of guests at a time.

Unfortunately, my pampered European stomach didn’t feel brave enough this day to try some of the food from this community (ironically, I got sick the next day from a supposedly “clean” restaurant, damn you weak stomach!).
