      ... Raw egg? Are you shittin' me?" Undeterred Oscar lines up all the bowls of raw egg and spoons the boiling liquid into them instantly creating little, soft yellow clouds in the bowls that taste like the silkiest, fluffiest scrambled egg. It's absolutely delicious. As we eat Oscar announces, "We have all that we need. Good food, good wine, good company and," gesturing at Hernando on the laptop, "good music". Considering Hernando seems to be a fan of Mexican-style Stock ...

      ... as household pets-not really....)

      Finally went for dinner, we were all starving. Went to this mexican place where I stocked up on margaritas and ate some proper Mexican food. I have no idea what it was called but it was yum. One thing was this bean soup (that I accidentally stole from Nico), tortilla with kebab meat in, super soft beef and this ham fajita thing with amazing melted cheese. By the time my main ...
