Below is a collection of pictures that bring back such precious memories from our time.
Here is the way most people live. Homes are very old and falling apart, but there is no money to make repairs. Also, a picture of a wood stove that heats the home and is where they do all the cooking.
Delicious food! The meal on the left is roasted lamb, cold chicken feet soup, pickled tomatoes, homemade feta, raspberry compote and cheese pies – all made on a wood stove with no running water in the house! The meal on the right is beet slaw, fermented carrots, corn mush, brown bread, beet soup and fried meat patties. Such complex and interesting flavors that we don’t have here in the US. I loved that everything is non GMO and organic. We felt so healthy over there, even with the cleanliness standards being very different. Many people would all share the same cup and think nothing of it. 🙂 It was good for us to be stretched in that area.
