My daily diet can be summed up in two staple food groups:
2. stuff you put on bread
Now before you think my diet is boring, let me clarify that there is a LOT of stuff you can put on bread! In the past few days alone, I have eaten bread topped with the following:
chicken curry sauce
and pretty much every combination thereof. It’s nice living across the street from Globus, which has the most Whole Foods/Central Market-like grocery store that I’ve found in Lausanne. They have several whole grain selections and the bread is always fresh, crusty, and delicious. Until I’m moved into a more permanent apartment with the means to boil water for pasta, bread will probably remain my main source of complex carbs.
Of course, I don’t eat exclusively bread-based meals. I also eat dark chocolate. 🙂 The Swiss swear that it’s good for you and I am happy to accept that as gospel without trying to verify it.
Today was a milestone for me: I successfully responded to a request for directions from a lost couple on the streets of Lausanne–and in French!
This week will mark another milestone: on Wednesday I and some other members of the Poken team are headed to Google’s Zurich office to present a Tech Talk. It was just a couple of months ago that I was there interviewing!
