Warning: This is not a normal dispatch. It makes no mention of any cultural, historical, or political data, and it doesn't tell you anything about what we really did today. It is simply to allow you, our faithful readers, an opportunity to experience the way that dispatches are hatched — and YOU'RE the lucky IJ (Internet Jockey) to create it! Are you ready, or what?
Breakfast:You wander toward a small store a few doors down from the hotel, hoping for a variation on the same old bakery theme. Alas, the selection is the same as usual: plain bread, warm processed cheese, too-sweet pastries, water, and pop. Blah . . . You scavenge for what might satisfy your appetite, though certainly not your taste buds. Ah well. There's always lunch.
Lunch:Throughout your meanderings today, you barely had a minute to acknowledge your poor, neglected stomach. You see all sorts of ready-to-eat delicacies along the souks and streets, but amidst your mad-dash errands, you barely grab enough to call a lunch. Hmm! It's hard to beat the fantastic food we've had the past week, so it all works out in the end. Maybe today you should just focus on the Meal of Your Dreams (see our Food of the Day).
Dinner:After the visit/presentation tonight, you're not the only tired and cranky IJ. Don't even stop to think that tomorrow is another biking day. All the restaurants that have been calling your name throughout the day have closed, or their menus have dried up and there's only a little of this or that available. As usual, the BikeAbout team collectively orders one of anything and everything suitable to serve, and you'll get whatever looks edible. Better luck tomorrow.
Food of the Day: Meal of Your Dreams!
