Mr. Globe Trotter visits Tel Aviv, Israel

In Israel, we eat shnitzel (breaded chicken), pasta, falafel, hummus, French fries, bamba (peanutbutter flavored snacks), bisli (salty snacks) and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Friday night marks the beginning of our Shabbat, or weekend of rest. We usually spend Friday nights with our family.  We eat Challah (braided bread), light candles, and drink wine.

We speak Hebrew, and many people also speak English, which the children start learning in 2nd grade.

People in Israel show they care by saying good things and helping each other out.  We like to laugh a lot.

Life in Germany!

Hallo Freunde! Hello Friends!

Greetings from Deutchland ! I have just recieved Mr Globe Trotter and I’m so very pleased to meet him. My family and I are stationed here on an assignment for the United States Airforce. Life here in Germany is vastly different from life in the U.S.A, where we enjoy multiple cultures and people of different nationalities . Here in Germany where the culture is exclusive ,you may not meet a non German if you do not live near a military installation or a big city. The language spoken here is German ,it is a very difficult language to learn .
This Friday is the Saint Martins day parade, where they celebrate with music , a bond fire ,sugar pretzels for the children and a horse and his rider leads the march through town. All the children make paper lanterns that are lit with tiny tea lights and they join in the parade .
St. Martin was a bishop who saved a homeless man one cold winter night by sharing his cloak. Afterwards he was committed to helping this less fortunate than himself .

Here a there are two very popular foods you can find anywhere , like our pizza or burgers ,they are called Schnitzel and Doner Kebab . The schnitzel is made of fried pork , it usually comes with a sauce and fries ,while the Doner could be chicken or pork ( I only eat the chicken one) and also comes with sauce and fries but can have additional toppings like cheese ,lettuce , and tomato.

There are lots of farmers here as Germans take pride in having great quality food to feed there people . You can dive or walk anywhere and see dozens of cows grazing in the fields . You will also see goats, lamb ,wild turkeys there’s even ostriches one street over ! There’s also tons of horses around too, I have some that live right next door and more on the corner of my street 😊😊

I will try to send you all pictures so you can see life here in Germany !

Hungarian cuisine is a prominent feature of the Hungarian culture, just like the art of hospitality. Traditional dishes such as the world famous Goulash (gulyás stew or gulyás soup) feature prominently. Dishes are often flavoured with paprika (ground red peppers), a Hungarian innovation.The paprika powder, obtained from a special type of pepper, is one of the most common spices used in typical Hungarian cuisine. The best quality of paprika comes from the city of Kalocsa . Thick, heavy Hungarian sour cream called tejföl is often used to soften the dishes’ flavour. The famous Hungarian hot river fish soup called Fisherman’s soup or halászlé is usually a rich mixture of several kinds of poached fish.

Other dishes are chicken paprikash, foie gras made of goose liver, pörkölt stew, vadas, (game stew with vegetable gravy and dumplings), trout with almonds and salty and sweet dumplings, like túrós csusza, (dumplings with fresh quark cheese and thick sour cream). Desserts include the iconic Dobos Cake, strudels (rétes), filled with apple, cherry, poppy seed or cheese, Gundel pancake, plum dumplings (szilvás gombóc), somlói dumplings, dessert soups like chilled sour cherry soup and sweet chestnut puree, gesztenyepüré (cooked chestnuts mashed with sugar and rum and split into crumbs, topped with whipped cream). Perec and kifli are widely popular pastries.

Come and visit Hungary!!

Have a nice day!!

Greetings
