Jamaica and Fruit overkill … :)

So now I am in São Paulo in the last days before we start to rock the preparation of the IC … and several great things already happened…
I finally got to see my teamster Meet from India and Soraya, the conference manager from Austria with african roots…
Friday night I also expected some african food, since a trainee from Kenia invited me to their little dinner that a friend had prepared for her. Since we were initially not invited we still brought some stuff for german pancakes, but what we found there was also already more than overwhelming! It was in fact not african, but Jamaican food, since her friend was from Jamaica and I can you – she can cook!
First rice with soysauce and chicken with some extra rafinesse and then afterwards still home made icecream with original Jamaican Coconut Rum! Even my pancakes later were with real Kingston original Jamaican Vanilla 😀 Then still my typical filling with cinnamon and sugar and the entire evening was just a feast :D. We still watched a Jamaican movie (“Shottas”) and had a great evening in international company:

Meet from India, just came fresh from the US, Soraya from Austria, me from Germany, then Immah and Ivy from Kenia, Jonathan from Panama with actually some Jamaican roots (!) and then last but way not least Chevanese from Jamaica. We still talked until 5 a.m. …

This morning (Saturday) I went with Mariana to the fair (includes the black market =D ) and bought a memory card for my camera – 2 Gigabyte for just 30 reais (10 Euros!). Several sunglasses for 5 reais (like 2 Euros) also found the interest of the girlst :).

The fruit fair was a vivid color explosion and an overflowing exposé of a lot of fruits that I had not ever heard of before! Some known ones like Litschi I was proud to recognize, but I did not know that nature brought forth things like a natural mix of Mango and Strawberry … really delicious :).

Let’s see what this rushing city still bears in mind for me until I go to the preparation on sunday night …
