Waking up at Inle Lake a month ago, I admired the view as I made my way to Shane and Arielle for breakfast. With a nod I said, “Good morning,” and we start chatting about the previous evening as a hostess sets a cup of coffee in front of me. In Myanmar sugar doesn’t help mask the luke warm cup of dirt water, nor does the room temperature milk help. I take a sip of coffee and my brain does a double take. What? It’s been so long, I let out an, “Awww my goodness,” and Arielle, anticipating this moment, clearly not having taken her eyes off my face exclaims, “Yes! It’s real coffee right! I was waiting for you to take your first sip!” We’re both seriously happy. But wait, there’s more!
We LOVE to eat. We love food. We love talking about food, eating great food, cooking nice meals, and telling stories of meals we’ve eaten with others. As such, we introduce you to Foodie Friday, where we bring you gastronomic delights from half way around the globe.
Just because we are on a tight budget doesn’t mean we aren’t eating well. In fact, cheap, good food is one of the reasons we came over to this part of the world. Indonesia has been filled so far with lots of fruit, rice, noodles, curries, chicken, pork and fish. But wait, there’s more!
