    ... all so interesting. Each meal, I had to explain to our waiter that due to her religion she needed to help, in some way, in the preparation of the meal. Sometimes she would turn the fire on, or splash the oil in the pot. She explained to me that it is part of her religion that a Jewish person must take some part in the cooking of every single meal. Although my English was better then hers, often it took longer to explain the predicament to the staff then ...

    ... rice as well to go with this lot)

    I went off to download my photos, watching this lot cook was making my stomach growl, the last photo had just finished uploading when he bought out my plate AND a big bowl of rice, their plates were even bigger than mine (mussels are considered to be the best thing around here and they were making the most of them)
