Vielfältig Stadt

We were headed to Kostas der Griesche for lunch today when we were sidelined by a little international festival at the end of our street at Marktplatz. Since we were hungry we walked around to see what sorts of goodies were offered. My eye went first to a Turkish booth where ladies were rolling yeast dough into large flat rounds about the size of flour tortillas. They spooned a mixture of spinach, onions and cheese into the rounds, folded them over and baked them on a griddle. For 5 CHF we had ein portion and it was delicious. Next we found an Indonesian booth where they were frying shredded vegetables mixed with a little dough so, of course, I had to have some of those served with tomato sauce (it turned out to be ketchup). Yummy! Sherman had two sate with peanut sauce which he liked but since he didn’t order it mit Reis und Salat it was more of a snack than lunch. So he tried an African chicken kebab with the works next.

This interkultureller Begegnungstag has a day-long schedule of entertainment including an Alphorn Trio (which, unfortunately, we’d already missed), Sudanesische music, Siamese poetry, sitar music, samba and something called Bollywood dance! These young ladies are performing "Oriental Gypsy Dances" which appear to be a combination of Spanish and belly dancing with a little hula thrown in. Fun for a beautiful Saturday!
