Today I am seventy-one years old. I remember when seventy-one seemed old to me. Now it doesn’t seem as old as it used to. Of course, being seventy-one my memory could be playing tricks on me.
Yesterday I managed to get to the gym for 30 minutes of cycling and that was a good thing. Around 1:15 we made our way to the Central Market and loaded up on fruit and vegetables. Melon, watermelon, cherries and strawberries abound. Oranges are selling at seven pounds for one Euro. Eating healthier is becoming easier. We did pick up some smoked turkey and some cheese at Solaz and will a full rolling cart we began the journey home.
We passed by an Indian restaurant called Dhaba on the way. It had closed down in January when it was offering a buffet style lunch and, in truth, had very few customers. It reopened in March with a new interior design and a new chef. There were a number of people eating on the terrace and even thought we had planned to eat lunch at home, we decided to give it a try. Here is a link http://www.dhaba.es/visita_virtual.html
The menu of the day included Naan, Basmati Rice, Chicken Tika, Raita, a black lentil curry and then one’s choice of wither chicken or lamb curry. I chose lamb and Susan chose chicken. The servings were rather abundant and everything was very tasty. We had asked for medium heat and that was a good choice for our first visit. Susan had some mango ice cream for dessert and we both had coffee. I had two beers and Susan had tow bottles of water. Our bill was 28 Euros.
When we arrived home we unpacked the rolling cart and settled in for the rest of the afternoon and evening. We gave some brief thought to going to a movie, but decided against it. Instead we watched two episodes of Glee and one of Smash. It was a little after 11:00 when we shut off the TV and got ready for bed.
