Pastries for Breakfast

Strong coffee and a pastry. That’s the typical breakfast, with a side serving of chocolate. Sigh.

In Australia we eat cereal, or yogurt and muesli, or tea and toast with vegemite.

In Norway it’s as slice of bread with brown cheese.

In Japan it’s miso soup with a bowl of rice.

And here!? Deliciousness that has you feeling full and slightly sick even before 9 am. From there, its only down hill into olives, wine and oil dripped on white bread for lunch and on and on. And lashings of cheese.

I know what you’re thinking. But it sounds wonderful! And it is. For a holiday. My life is a holiday here in Spain. Its obviously something I need to embrace, since, as you know, I’ve been such a stoic puritan all of these years.
