30 Dec 2018 - Sunday. Last weekend of the year and we were treated to a sumptuous brunch of German pancakes aka Pfannkuchen by Sangita. She used bananas to help sweeten them naturally and we were spoiled by her having them cooked for us ala-minute.

22 Dec 2018 - Saturday. An hour's flight away and we were in Hamburg where Ute greeted us and had us home in Buhholtz a jiffy.

Luckily for Flo and I, Pascal decided to go with the way of … Continue reading Rhubarb Le Restaurant, Duxton Hill.
