Great weekend

Bad weather outside- good time for reading, writing and enjoying music inside.

Today I spent some hours on reading and writing, I really enjoyed it. I didn´t have to leave the flat and that was great.
Yesterday , after work I took the train to V. because of the bad weather-conditions.
There I met P. for lunch in a Japanese restaurant. It was delicious. P. told me about her cooking class this Saturday, this time they would learn how to cook Asian food.
The restaurant offers Asian, African and Latin- American cooking- classes.It sounded very interesting.
Then she asked me to join her the next time- so we´ll cook Kenyan.I only ate African food twice. I enjoyed a meal in an Ethiopian restaurant in V.- they offered simple dishes with a great taste and in S-Africa I had lunch in a restaurant, which turned out to be too touristy.There I tried ostrich-steak, well, it was an experience.......but not a good one. So I look forward to cooking a typical African meal in about 2 weeks.

Today I also had enough time for music. I didn´t want to practice, because I wrote a lot today so I listened to some music.
I like various artists and nearly all kinds of music, and sometimes I try to compare different interpretations of one and the same song.
So, if you want, enjoy and compare:-)
