Well, I have been a bit busy this week, setting up my other blog, mosskitchen.wordpress.com This is to complement my site mosskitchen.com which is really just my little ‘shop’. I truly cannot resist! Anyway, feel free to visit those sites, too. I would love to hear what you think of them.
Now to business!
Yesterday we went into the city to take part in the Indian Food and Culture Festival held in Aotea Square, as part of the celebration of Diwali. It was fun, with lots of food stalls and entertainment all served up by friendly people with a great sense of humour and enthusiasm. They were keen to share their enjoyment with all, which always makes for great day and we had lots of laughs as we visited each stall and tasted as much as we could. Of course, because it was a festival occasion there was no meat, so I was “forced” to eat the deep-fried samosas stuffed with peas and potato and all the other greasy delights that pop out of that hot oil!
At the end of the day, we agreed that the great attitude of the people manning the stalls and just making up the crowd was what made it so great. Everyone welcomed us when we started to chat to them and their smiles and good cheer laid the foundations of a cracking good time. Here are a few of the smiling people we met and had a laugh with.
THANK YOU ALL!
