    ^ Very nice!

    I had chicken and cashew stir fry for lunch. I'm only a few hundred kilometres from home but it was different than I'm used to...



    There were two new fruits I've never seen before. The girl said the purplish brownish things were called 'dju dju' or something similar and the yellow berry-like things were called 'gingko'. They tasted OK but I'm still none the wiser as to what they were.

    Ginkgo is a nut/seed.

    I would take a guess that the other is what we would know as jujube.

    No idea yet. There are 2 rather tall spires in the same picture, so it should be a biggish town. There is some red sandstone in the tower and the wall. Mendip would probably be able to narrow it down a bit. I have seen sandstone like that around Warwickshire and Birmingham as well as further north in Lancashire and Cumbria. Am I getting warm?

    ^ Looks like the top of a two day old reheated lasagne... but surely in that case there would be gravy on it?
