Market Day in Bodrum Tuesday is Fabric Market day in Bodrum. We had an amble around there — it was held inside a big building by the bus station, and was pretty hot and airless. We got hassled to buy, but the stall-holders weren’t too pushy, and I don’t think we ended up buying much. …View full post

Sunny Blue Rice Balls You usually have to travel to a foreign country to encounter a new dish that captures your taste buds and imagination, but yesterday I stumbled upon a narrow little hole in the wall called Sunny Blue along Venice’s Main Street. “First Omusubi Store in Southern California”, caught my attention, and at first …
