This is it. Dear readers, the reason why I haven’t been posting for two weeks is because we were busy with making our class movie. This is supposed to be the last post. I can’t believe it.
In the following video you can get an idea of what this studying abroad experience meant to me.
During this spring semester I’ve been cooking for this blog. Sometimes it made me happy, sometimes not. On most occasions I had a visitor. For instance, Renee Strik who comes from the Netherlands and showed how to prepare a typical Dutch dish. We students miss that food we get back at home.
“In Holland we have a lot of choice what to do on bread, cause we’re big, good bread eaters,” Renee said. “So, that’s what I do miss. And also the bread, I miss that too.”
Very soon every student from AUBG will return home or go abroad to work during the summer. Those not returning home probably will miss their mom’s cooking. I find one thing really weird. Men are considered better cooks than women, but children keep saying stuff like Ekaterina Tchelidze from Georgia:
“I’m not really a good cook, but my mom is and I always try to learn something from her,” said Ekaterina.
Or Ediobong Ebiefung from the States, who also likes his mother’s cooking.
“At home my mother usually does the cooking,” Eddie said. “When I’m at university I usually go to cafeteria. But when I’m at my home I usually eat whatever my mom makes.”
So why is it that men are considered better than women? I think that it’s a way to make a man feel good about himself. I don’t want to admit that cooking skills depend from which gender are you. If you’d like to, please feel free to rate my cooking skills. To do so you must visit me in Latvia. (Or here, in Bulgaria. But hurry up – I ain’t got no time.)
Until then come and see what I’ve cooked so far.
