I love to travel, meeting people and learning about their everyday lives. When I visit new places, I enjoy hiking/trekking outdoors and visiting museums and UNESCO sites as well as trying new foods and shopping in local markets and shops. My July 2014 holiday was a trip to Prague and Germany with my niece. I enjoy road trips too, in all parts of the world. We are closer to real people on the road, in India, China, Korea, Germany, France, Switzerland, and Canada (many times), to name a few, as well as in the US. In May I took a road trip through the Southwest, stopping in Dallas; Chaco Canyon, a UNESCO site, in New Mexico; Petrified Forest and Grand Canyon, another UNESCO site, in Arizona; Las Vegas, Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon in Nevada; and Bryce Canyon and Arches National Parks in Utah. In October I hiked in Mammoth Cave, a UNESCO site and the largest cave system in the world: 412mi/663km mapped so far.

Tell me about your favorite food. What is it called in your language? Is it from your own country or another place? Is it sweet or savory? What is it made from? Is it simple to make or complicated? Where do you eat it? How often do you eat it? I've learned from your answers that people all over the world love pizza, pasta, sushi and potato pancakes.
My favorite food? At this time of year I look forward to my mom's ever-popular cranberry salad.
1 pound cranberries
Grind them in a food processor and mix with:
2 cups sugar
Drain in a colander overnight.
In a bowl, mix drained cranberries with:
2 cups halved seeded red grapes, Tokay if available.
1 cup whole or coarsely chopped pecan halves
1 cup heavy cream, whipped.
Chill well before serving.
Postscript. I didn't vote for him.
