In my last blog entry when I said native home museum what I meant was that there is a museum in the same house where Pablo Picasso was born. They tried to show us the house like it was when he lived there. Sorry, I thought it was the right word!
Last saturday I went with my family to a restaurant by the beach to say goodbye to the sun, the nice weather and the Spanish food. I took pictures of everything that we ordered.
Here are the pictures of the delicious food that we ate!
Sardines. I'll explain later how they cook them.
Paella. (I prefer my mum's paella!)
Clams cooked with garlic, parsley, olive oil and water.
Fried little squids. (One of my favorite!)
Fried aubergines. We eat them with sugar-cane syrup.
If you go to Malaga and walk along t of these promenade seaside restaurants don't worry if you see a man cooking sardines in a boat full of sand. It's very common! I asked the man who was cooking them how they do it and he told me that they put the sardines on a cane, being careful of putting the bones of all the sardines on the cane (not some of them under and some of them on). Then they put the canes in the sand near the fire.
As I told you before, I love my mum's paella. She cooks it almost every sunday and all my siblings come to my house to have it too. Some of the ingredients are prawns, chicken, rabbit, peas, peppers (red and green)... Here is a picture of my mum's paella.
I'm in the UK at the moment! I arrived at East Midlands Airport last Monday evening. My plane was full of tanned British, I think I was the only Spaniard on board!
As I told you on my first entry, I'm working as au pair until the 17th of August. It is the third time that I work for this family, so we already know each other. Although it's cloudy and cold I'm happy to be here, I really love this country and its people!
See you soon!
