Not-so-good meals


harbour, Tyre
Originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

These needed more thinking about, as one tries to forget bad experiences and remember the good ones. Anywa, for the record here they are:

1 Wimpy in George - attached to a petrol station on the main road, we even had to order at the table and wait a long time before they delivered buns with horrible unidentifiable wet stuff in the middle. But the good thing about this meal was that it gave us the time to look at the map and decide to go north over the Outeniqua mountains to get to the paradise of the Klein Karoo.

2 Chicken kebab in Livingston - Goodness knows what they were doing serving this as it came in a bread-like substance and was so far removed from the delicious kebabs on which we survived in Beirut.

3 Steak in the trendy wine bar in Cape Town - The days after Jessica's delicious steak (see post below). We knew it was a mistake to come here, but we had eaten well there before and they had agreat wine selection. Meat tasted like and had the texture of cardboard, at a price which was higher than at Jessica's.

4 Fast food in Lusaka - rubbish food for three of us cost as much as sending a young orphan to school for a year.

5 Aleppo by the citadel - We were not allowed rto sit at te table we wanted and then not the table which they wanted (near the kitchen), so ate at the next door neighbours and the food and quality was rubbish. Met two nice English pepole and had a great view of the citadel though.

6 Pancakes on the Omo - For breakfast. Took ages to make, meant leaving camp at 11, having been up at 6. Eventually meant not having much time to met the tribes further on (still a frustration).

7 Chicken on the Omo - Tough, these Ethiopian chickens are trained to run in the Olympics.

8 Breakfasts in Beirut - Powder coffee and milk, bread type substance with taste of cardboard (again) and apricot jam. Not the best strat to the days.

9 French meal in Aleppo - Should have stuck with Arabic food, but min issue was that we should have chosen the lebanese wine, not the local Syrian stuff.

10 Steinbach coffee and cakes. 'Nuff said!

Seems like we had our share of fast food meals, but that was not really the case. Just the ones we had were horrible. Except then, the chicken shoarmas, washed down with lager, in Beirut. Delicious!
