#day327 – killing my Southamerica Ramen

Me and my Ramen, we were such good friends. We travelled together from Buenos Aires in Argentina all the way up to Santa Marta in Colombia. We spent six intensive months together. Something that let you become real friends. I know everything about my Ramen and my Ramen knows everything about me. I remember our […]

#day236 – Bolivian hummus

I’m talking about it since months. Good hummus with pita bread. There’s nothing better than an Arabian dinner with friends in Neukölln in Berlin actually. Miss it. A lot. There’re a few Arabian restaurants in Southamerica as well, but they’re hard to find. I’ve been in a good one in Buenos Aires. Long time ago. […]

#day235 – Cherimoya

Every time I pass a fruit stall I’m  wondering what this big green fruit could be, a bit looking like a mutated acorn. But I was blended by all those good looking mangos and bananas, I never thought about buying it. I didn’t even know the fruits name to tell someone what I want. And then […]

#day226 – Ritter Sport 50% off

Damn, there are days when everything is going wrong. Today is such a day. First we wanted to get a night bus back to La Paz. Not possible right now. Hence we have to take a day bus and change the bus somewhere additionally. A bit beach would have been a worthfully replacement. No sun […]

#day210 – yuca food coma

Oh my god, I ate so much the last week. Food is just too cheap here. And it isn’t even really good. I mean you can find tasty food, but most restaurants sell unhealthy stuff and you have to keep your eyes open for something good. Since I like to eat local products whereever I […]

#day194 – Empanadas in the making

Since already more than two months I eat empanadas every day. Ok, almost every day. But they’re great. They are my bread replacement. I’m addicted. The differences in Southamerica are enormous though. I was used to the Argentinans ones and pretty surprised when I had my first Chilean empanada. They’re triple the size (great) and […]

#day182 – Chilean Cuisine

After bars and drinks yesterday it was time to check out food specialaties today. The best way to do that is by walking around the city center. Or taking a free walking tour. That’s what I did today. Now I know, it’s all about fast food. Similar to the Argentinian one, the Chilean cuisine is nothing […]

#day139 – an Alfajores at the balcony

The Argentinians like it sweet. One of their most famous sweets is the so called Alfajores. It’s actually a sandwich cookie filled with Dulce de leche. I’m not sure if you can get it with another filling, but it’s for sure the most common one. Dulce de leche is also a beloved sweet thing here. Actually in whole South […]
