Adventures of me: I lived abroad for 8 years, I'm now back in the USA, I still travel abroad and wonder if I should have stayed abroad. Topics: my travels (and sometimes other people's), motorcycle adventures and touring, expatriates, trying to make a home in the USA, camping, feminism, human rights, dogs, politics, religion (or lack thereof), movies, & more.
As Stefan says on his description of one of our photos from yesterday, "The worlds best Döner is still in Bonn-Bad Godesberg/Germany, but this one in Portland. Oregon is not bad at all (515 SW 4th Ave.)." The place in Bonn-Bad Godesberg has ruined us both for all other doener, but, indeed, this one is nice, and I hope we can go back. Interesting that this doener Kebab restaurant promotes itself as offering "German cuisine." But I guess the doener kebab has become the German national dish. I can't believe doener hasn't really caught on here in the USA! This is me posing with the cover of the menu -- nothing like those cartoonish stereotypes to smooth over relations with different cultures. I guess there aren't enough Turks in Portland to be outraged.
