While shopping for gifts in Madrid, I wondered, would my friend in Belgium prefer white or rosé? Heck, I got both, he can take his pick. Time to start packing again…
Ginja is cherry liqueur from a little medieval town called Óbidos, our destination on day 2 of Portugal. It is served in a tiny chocolate cup, and after taking a shot, the cup is eaten. Very delicate!
In preparation for the various dinner invitations this week, I picked up a bottle of Breton cider for Tuesday and a bottle of Normandy cider plus a bottle of Alsace Riesling white wine for Thursday.
[No WordPress in China] After dinner, I spent sometime drinking and chatting with my uncles. Oh, how I’ve missed the place of my childhood.
The night before going to China (yes I’m going to China tomorrow!) I had two girlfriends over for dinner. My part was preparing the drinks, but we didn’t drink as much as I had anticipated. Perhaps I’m just an alcoholic. Oh and that is indeed a bottle of ketchup.
