Much happened in our second week. Oliver and Bert came home from quarantine a day early. This is because Oliver had gone on a hunger strike and they were concerned about him. The cats have settled in very quickly, are eating fine, and are doing well.
We’ve been exploring the neighborhood and eating a variety of food. My favorite, so far, is the hot pot restaurant under the Carrefour Supermarket. There is a marvelous “food court” that doesn’t really deserve to be called a food court because it is definitely a cut above that. There are a variety of restaurants serving freshly made food. At the hot pot restaurant, each person has their own pot and you can order any ingredients off the menu.
I can have the non-spicy broth and DaddyBird can have the one with all the chilies in it.
A basket of mushrooms.
Sliced lotus root, sliced meat – toss it in the boiling pot to cook.
A carafe of limeade, and you’ve got it made. The two of us ate for 128 yuan ($20.00, 76 AED). Very healthy and very tasty.
