We both live in Israel. He comes from Buenos Aires (the city itself); I'm from a small town in the U.S.A.. (How small? Let's just say that I lived a 10 -15 minute walk from the woods, and the creek flowed behind the houses across the street from me.) <snip>

Sounds like the felafel I prepare for my family on special occasions! :-) (I add hot red-pepper powder and extra cumin to the spiced chickpea flour before adding water, shaping it into balls and deep-frying them. Then, into the pita bread along with these, I stuff deep-fried vegetables, especially sliced eggplant and onion, french fries (chips, in British English) cut from both white potatoes and from orange sweet potatoes; not to forget the hot green peppers, sliced pickled and fresh vegetables. My kids then like to pour t'china sauce (made from sesame seeds) over the whole thing! [Not me! I know my limits! ;-) ] ) It goes down real nice. But after a while ... :-D Dan Sulani -------------------------------------------------------------------- likehsna rtem zuv tikuhnuh auag inuvuz vaka'a. A word is an awesome thing.
