Sometimes I really miss Japan. The only thing that helps on such a
moment is to buy something from there or to do something Japanese.
Wednesday was such a day. I went to the bookstore, hoping to find a
Japanese book and by wonder I immediately found one!
Tokyo Cult Recipes is a great cookbook, not only for the recipes but
also for the stories and pictures (see below).
Today I tried some dishes (pics above) and brought a little Japan into
my home.

from today

Spring is in the air. The animals graze in the pastures, we have dinner 
outside again and blossoms are everywhere.

Today JJ and I went to the National botanic garden, to see the 
Magnolias bloom.
They are so pure, white and beautiful.
When I cleaned up our bedroom later this day, there was a pigeon 
watching me through the window.

Yesterday we climbed to the top of a mountain in Monfrague
a National Park of Extremadura.
It was a tough walk and vultures were circling above us, 
waiting for us to give up. 
After fourteen kilometers we arrived in a small town, Serradilla
