Merry Christmas everyone!
All the way from Suriname in South America, where it’s kinda weird to celebrate Christmas in 25-30 degrees Celcius.
This is a quick post to update you on why I have not posted more articles about Christmas around the world. The last minute decision to travel, all the preparations for a 12-hour trip and challenges to get on the Internet once there, did not help much.
I almost forgot what it was like to use dial-up to get online! You don’t realize how spoiled you are until you have to dial up again 🙂
Anyway, it’s nice to be back home again, where I’m feasting on fresh fruit, and simple homecooked meals. So far I’ve had 4 different types of mangoes, all very sweet as they naturally ripen on the trees.
For Christmas we’ll have pineapple-ham with mashed potatoes, salad and green beans. Yesterday I baked a plum-rum-raisin cake for dessert. Sounds pretty much like a holiday dinner anywhere in the world, but for us it’s a true and special treat. I’ll post some pictures when I return from the trip.
Again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
