And here's my first oil painting...a Nicaraguan woman with a pot, executed in oil and crayon on canvas. She is currently providing company to the other lady in our living room. Look closely and you can just about see yours truly clicking the picture. Some spring flowers that were growing by a storm water drain...just to remind you that even though the temperature outside is in the 40's and the winds threaten to blow you over its actually mid April. Installation art made up of cuttlery and peppers at the Freer Gallery. We had gone there to watch The Story of The Weeping Camel - a Mongolian movie about a sad, photogenic Bactrian camel that finally wept...very touching.
The restaurant page has been updated to include Sabang, an Indonesian restaurant in Wheaton which was recommended by our friend blinkeredgreen - the economist who really knows her Rendang. The economically priced buffet was well executed with enough choices for the vegetarian as well as the carnivore. The fiery Rendang dissolved a few of my taste buds, but the deep fried, battered plantain helped regrow some of those taste buds back, so I am certainly not complaining.
So there, let's see...with five pictures, each of which is apparently equal to a thousand words and a few others thrown in for good measure, this should add up to atleast 5320 words, give or take a few. Not bad, eh!
