There was another American English teacher in Horn in March (woo!) and he had a dog, Missy. So, naturally, she became my photo of the day. Adorable.
A famous Austrian dessert, “Mohr im Hemd”. The translation of the dessert is very odd and I would say sounds kind of racist as well. Racist sounding desserts? Austria can be strange like that. There are many things that would not fly in the US that people don’t give a second thought to here. Well, expect maybe the Americans. That being said, the dessert is quite good. Basically a chocolate cake/brownie thing with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.
Food again. I was eating out a lot that week. This is at one of the two Chinese places in town. Yes, there are a whole two! Fried vegetables with a GIANT egg roll in the background. Too bad it had pork in so I couldn’t try it.
One the way home from Horn’s train “station” during sunset.
Hello again! No excuses this time. I’m just not very good at this I suppose. I promise I take pictures everyday! Well, except for one day I forgot, but that’s not awful.
One of the U-Bahn (subway) stations has a hall of mirrors. Each mirror has some kind of fact with a counter on it. Some of the facts are sad like, “number of people killed by grenades this year”, and some of them are funny: “number of schnitzels eaten so far this year”. It makes for an interesting walk down a long hall. This is not a very good picture, but this is one really long mirror with pi written out for about 40 numbers or so.
Raclette night. One of my friends has a raclette grill. On top of the grill you grill vegetables (or, in some cases, meat). Underneath you melt raclette cheese. When the cheese is melted, you pour it over some potatoes, throw some veggies on top and maybe add a few spices. This is apparently popular in Switzerland and it’s quite tasty.
This is the day I didn’t take a picture. I thought I’d lost my camera and my phone was dead. So here’s a nice picture of Horn from a few months ago. Pretty, but I am so glad that winter is over!!
Delicious lentil recipe with zucchini and white asparagus. I love white asparagus!
