One of the exciting things about going back to the home country to visit is that we can eat all of the foods that are unavailable or hard to find here in the US. Here’s a list of things we ate in the past ten days (pictures are not my own because I was either too lazy to take a picture or too lazy to take them off the camera yet):
Raw herring, eaten with raw onion.
Bitterballen and kroketten: they’re both ragout with a fried crust around them. Kroketten are best eaten with fries served with mayonaise.
Lots of awesome Indonesian food, all of it homemade by Dr. BrownEyes’ family.
And last but not least: bread with cheese. And with this I mean tasty wheat bread with good old cheese!
With our suitcases filled with cheese, stroopwafels and liquorice we came back home yesterday evening. I’ll write more later about the fruitful and less fruitful scientific meetings I had!
