I'm so tempted to buy the wonderful foods I see in street markets. But being a tourist with nowhere to store and cook I regret I must pass. Much of the fruit and veg I have never seen before and I'm eager to try. Which is true I suppose for most folks in England. If we don't recognise a sweet potato - then we don't buy it. I do miss the vanilla flavoured Apples ( Custard Apples ) I had in Australia.

Got my first delicious taste of Pilsner Urquell and I still buy it today from our local World Market store. What I remember from that restaurant stop for dinner in Pilzen at that time, our steak dinners with all the fixings cost about $7 each and inside each restroom a woman sold sheets of toilet tissue (none...
I have a warm feeling about Urquell, and not just because it's good beer. In May, 1945, my father's regiment ended up in a small German town, just across the border from Pilsen, which was occupied by the Red Army. At first, it became routine for the GIs to send a truck across the line to pick up a few barrels. But a few months later, things got frostier, and eventually the Russian company commander began demanding 'papers' before allowing the truck across. My father's regiment commander had...
