Lots of pics these days of my routines so my friends and family can picture me in this season and in this place. This is The Greasy Spoon, a British foodie diner near my language school. Medina is from Kirgistan so she prefers Asian food, but sometimes I come here with American friends. Sometimes I come solo and enjoy a rare moment of solitude. (This is my first time alone in awhile.) The servers rock overalls and British accents. I love that all the tea cups are different, and my favorite dish is the avocado smash on gluten free toast. The bacon also kicks ass. Today is a work day in Sweden but we will host a belated Thanksgiving meal this weekend with friends. This afternoon my mission is to find pie pans, an electric hand mixer, pumpkin and cranberries. We will likely settle for chickens in lieu of turkey. Homesick and grateful, all at once.
