cups, sauces and good beer

sunny 22 °C

the greatest thing happened last night.we were hungry and it was late but we found a bar open and when we ordered food, drinks, sauces, whatever you may want...they knew exactly what you meant..normally, over the last month, it would go like this:

me/ky:"can i have a glass, cup, for the water, a cup...?"
african waiter:..blank stare with big huge smile where he repeats "cup" as if he has never heard such a word
us:"a cup (lots of sign language going on here to signify the shape of a cup and what it would look like to pour water from our water bottle in the cup)"
server:"yes, please, water?"
us:"no, we have water..a cup...to drink (more sign language)

i think you get the point...so when kyle wanted honey mustard sauce for fries and i wanted my burger medium and with some extras myself...he simply said...ok and smiled..kyle and i looked at each other, then at the camera, of course...and were very thankful..also, i was in heaven at the sight of a proper beer selection..i had a peroni..thank god for the italians!

were headed out for a 17 day road trip, investing in a new camera and cant wait for whats still to come..

Karoline.

The Kahlua Don Pedro - should be available at all drinking establishments all over the earth. I would be very disappointed, if I were to visit New York, and draw blank looks when asking for one.

In order to ensure that there's at least on place in NY NY (or Delhi if needs be) where I'll be able to get my Don Pedro fix - please take note of the information provided below:

- 1 oz whisky (whiskey,bourbon...)
- 1 oz coffee liqueur (tia maria,kahlua)
- 1 cup ice cream (vanilla)
- 1 cup cream

Combine all ingredients together in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a hurricane glass, and serve.

PS. Drive safely!
