Rice!

Headed for Ouren today. I passed Burg-Reuland, and started my hike in a new country: Luxembourg.  It’s taken me 20 days to pass through Holland and Belgium.

There’s a campsite in Ouren, so I picked up the pace and got there around 5.30pm. The campsite has a restaurant, so I quickly showered and ordered the “plat du jour”, which was a chicken marsala thingy with crisps and rice made with vegetables – just what I needed. I practically inhaled the food, and I think I alarmed a few of the other diners when I nearly vacuumed the plate with my mouth.

I haven’t eaten any rice since I started this trip, so it was great having some for dinner. You should know that one-third of the Goan diet consists of rice, so I naturally crave rice. The other two-thirds of the Goan diet: fish and curry.

Got an early night’s sleep next to the lake, and fell asleep to the sound of lapping water.

    That’s why you’re the Curry Casanova my friend.
