Soup, Snow & NÃ¼rnberger Lebkuchen
Greece like the rest of Europe is experiencing snow storms and plunging temperature. Athens is eerie quite today but it did not stop me going out. Athenians are not so used to this kind of weather, Athens rarely turns white but when it does… the city is like a ghost town. Last time it snowed like this was two years ago
and all flights were cancelled, Athens airport is not fully equipped to deal with this kind of weather am afraid.
The Acropolis is freckled with snow (would have been a great photo opportunity but for 12â‚¬ entrance nah I would rather walk around and enjoy the frosty bliss.
Yes I said frosty bliss… I kinda miss this kind of cold weather.
Took the photo of these pigeons just when the snow started falling heavily.
After the gym, I decided to walk home and I was literally covered with snow. I felt like one of those penguin battling the Antarctic winter.
As I type this, I am enjoying a mug of tea and some NÃ¼rnberger Lebkuchen which I got from the German Food Exhibition .. THE TASTE OF GERMANY…I went to last weekend, but that will be another story.
NÃ¼rnberger Lebkuchen is a gingerbread with wafer based and you can taste and SMELL THE SPICES… yes spices perfect for this Siberian temperature.
One can still taste the exotic spices from all corners of the globe in wafer-based gingerbread: aniseed, cloves, ginger, cardamom, mace, coriander, allspice, candied orange and lemon peel and cinnamon. Almonds and other nuts are also added
