Pottery from Rwanda


Once in a while you find pieces that you fall in love with at first sight. 
This is the case with these beautiful ceramic bowls. They're made by artisans in Kigali, Rwanda and brought to Kampala by Good Glass, my favorite shop in town.


Love the look of the glaze dripping from the edge of the bowl.


Great for serving breakfast.

Ceviche


In my book, the best remedy for homesickness is a bowl of ceviche!
Here served in sushi rice bowls.


I used Nile Perch, one of the only two choices of fresh fish I have in Kampala. The other choise is Tilapia. Both from the Lake Victoria waters, thirty minutes away from the city.




The fresh cilantro is from our organic garden at home. Here in Uganda they call it "dhania".

Happy weekend!!!

Damnoen Saduak floating market {Thailand}


The most famous of Bangkok's floating markets is Damnoen Saduak.
I could not miss this "must see" on my recent visit to Bangkok.
A colorful place to see the traditional way of selling and buying goods in Thailand.

arbol del pan {Bogota, Colombia}


Hidden in a anonymous street at the popular Chapinero neighborhood in Bogota, Arbol del Pan offers the most amazing artisanal French pastries and breads.


The place is small but they have a couple tables for the people who go for their delicious breakfast or lunch.


Ciabbata, sourdough, baguette, and a delicious olive bread are some of their artisanal bread varieties.




Almond croissants, "pain au chocolat" and pistachio-chocolate rolls fresh out of the oven.
