In my homeland
One of the things that give me pleasure when I visit my natal home and community is seeing the dynamics of the everyday from a different perspective. From visiting the elementary school I went to and seeing great progress on a project to build a basketball court for all my 'homies' to get some recreation to visiting the health clinic I used to attend when I was a young boy. The best part of this trip so far is getting back to tasting some foods I have been missing not because I cannot get the ingredients in MI but because here is a specific way of preparing them here that is quite tasty. I am thinking here of mashed potatoes and green bananas, or salted free range chicken!
