Free Lunch - 26 Sep 2010
  There is no such thing as a free lunch or so the saying goes, well I have disproved the rule. There is in fact such a thing as a free lunch if like me you are lucky enough to live near Hussain the 'Hodja' (Imam).

Yesterday on his way back from doing Imam duties he dropped by to say hello, or at least I thought he did, then between my bad Bulgarian and his attempt at 'charades' he managed to communicate to me that I needed to fetch him a large bowl and a spoon.

I quickly went inside and found a soup bowl and a dessert spoon, 'golyam, golyam', (big, big), again I returned with a serving bowl and serving spoon 'ah tacka' (not really sure what this means, but sort of 'there you go')

I place the said items on my garden table and he was busy opening one of his many bags, my serving bowl was then filled to the limit with beef and rice, and then duly left without saying another word!

I still do not know why he felt the need to deliver me food, perhaps I was looking a bit thin. It was however greatlyfully recieved and I can't wait if he decides to pop by again!

PS I would like to say thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read this blog/website, some have asked for more pics, all I can say is I ate all the food before I had chance to take a picture! Also I find people who constantly go round with a camera in front of there face taking pics 'beef and rice' are a bit sad. If you want to know what it look likes, well it was beef mixed with rice - that is lumps of brown mixed with lots of little white bits! There is also more pics on the forum which is linked to on the left hand side!
