With CP taking care of business (map reading, negotiating with taxi drivers and all things gadget related) an opportunity has presented itself which involves unveiling one of the most compelling situations facing the middle east today..
As we travel far & wide throughout these wonderful and war-torn countries, my attention has been turned to ponder the age old question-
WHO put the H in homous??
Word in the souk is that the tahini made by the palestinians is da bomb. Anyway we are expecting some explosive flavours when we get to Israel.
Lebanon will be very hard to beat. We had some wonderful homous experiences the highlight being a humble little cafe in Gemmazeyeh, Beruit. The homous was silky smooth and warm with a delightfully generous serving of pinenuts & homemade olive oil..
However, while staying in a charming little chalet in the snow, we were informed that they had NO homous!! To which CP whispered I wonder how they'll brush their teeth tonight?' Obviously a few points were deducted here.
Lebanon homous experience- 7.5 chickpeas out of 10.
