My ama told me to tell her what I ate for my first meal in Göteborg. I ended up eating Mayos which I brought from Kathmandu because I forgot to buy cooking oil after going to two grocery stores! I bought onions, garlic, cauliflower, rice and even spaghetti and sauce. But I forgot oil. How can one cook tarkari without oil. I thought I’d use the margarine I bought because I just wanted to eat rice and some tarkari. Oh well.
Mayos felt closer to home, but it didn’t taste so good. And the almost gobbled up sandwich saved my stomach. Thanks a lot to my friend in Malmö. She’d made two sandwiches for me for my train ride to Göteborg and that saved my stomach for the rest of the day. :-)
Class doesn’t start until Monday and I couldn’t get a lot of things done today because of this and that and that and this…Plus the weather just gets me down. I of all people, who can’t stand cold and snow, have come to a city where it is already cold (for me at least) in August end. I miss the sunshine in my room back home. The way it lit up my room every evening and let my plant grow taller each day.
My window now faces West and hardly catches any of the little sunshine that is left of the day.
