It’s usually Stefan Reichart’s job to report about the Bundesliga on this blog, but since he’s on holiday, he asked me to take over. What I’ve been asking myself since he told me his holiday dates, though, is whether he decided to be away this week in particular because he expected HSV, the team he supports, to get beaten by Mainz and didn’t fancy having to write about it. If he did, mind you, there wasn’t much point, because as it turned out, HSV put a 1:0 stop to Mainz run of seven victories in a row.
My small size may lend the impression that I eat just vegetables and salad. Well, this is definitely not the case! I actually come from a very strong kitchen, the Arabic one! I’m not sure what ingredients you associate with the Arabic kitchen, but it’s without a doubt one of the heaviest cuisines I’ve ever tried. But for some reason, I’ve been unable to appreciate the German cuisine, and have found company in this with Italians, Greeks, Turks and of course other Arabs. I keep wondering what exactly is our problem? Is it that we’re not open enough to appreciate other cuisines and local food?
