Trip to Poland

Time flies. I have no idea how it happened but it is almost end of June already!

The favorite part of the period between the last post and this one was my going to Poland for almost two weeks. I did some sight-seeing and overate on yummy foods, especially pastries and fish. I went for some runs. I met with old friends, local and from Germany. I had an amazing time. And before I knew it, it was time to leave.
Below are some of the pictures I took in Gdansk, Sopot, and Gdynia. And of course, pictures of food!

Lazy lunch

Since I was off today, I decided to have a "lazy" lunch outside. Had guava fruit, fresh coconut, and hemp milk.

Salads that I had this week:
1) Tomatoes, radishes, avocado, and hemp seed hearts
 2) Red and orange peppers, baby kale, chard, cucumber, cilantro, hemp seed hearts with balsamic vinegar

3) Strawberries, honeydew melon, blueberries, coconut chips

Grocery shopping

Today I went to get some groceries and ended up with a few really cool items. The big round thing is Jicama. It is crispy and very tasty but you need to peel it because the skin is a little poisonous! It can be added to veggies, raw or cooked, and it can be eaten with other fruit. I like to cut it to cubes and eat it as it is. The I also got guavas, strawberries, unsalted sunflower seeds, and of course my favorite coconut chips (yay!).

Last week rained a lot and one of the garden paths turned into my private little waterfall:

And here is Bolek, the Raccoon, visiting and spying on us from her usual spot in the tree!

Easter on campus

No Easter Chicks, sorry. But I do have one Easter Dinosaur...   :)

A perfect day: 80F or 27C!
It is getting greener and greener by the second!
 Had to buy a new umbrella. Three days ago, it was very windy. Could have known that wind and umbrellas DO NOT mix! Found the wretched thing at my neighbors', totally destroyed. Fortunately got another one the same day, exactly the same color. Yay! (Matches blueberries!)
