I Ate Lunch In Tel Aviv

Nice thought, but not this Tel Aviv, rather a small restaurant in Minneapolis! A person can dream though.

I often forget how close I live to a diversity of cultures and the food that comes with it. I parked my ever-broadening behind in the cultural black hole known as The West Metro and have become as stuck as if I had sat in hardening cement. The bigger problem with this black hole is it's gentrifying. Suburbanites in SUV's and BMW's have overtaken farmers and small town dwellers. Enough to give any self-respecting urban-snob-turned-country-snob a case of the shakes. But then again, I guess it's the price you pay for living within a half hour's drive to the city. Looking at it this way, I think I should utilize my proximity a bit more!

  1. It sounds like you have the best of both worlds. Close enough to experience city life, but far enough away to live and breathe!

  5. I was thinking that was one fast rip you took broken wrist and all! I have found that I sometimes feel quite out of place visiting the big city restaurants while I still enjoy the good food...just some of the stuffy atmosphere I can do without.

  6. Alicia, the restaurant is middle eastern, so definitely not a stuffy atmosphere!

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
