10/27/09 – Close encounters of the third country’s local cuisine
What”s up people!! As you can tell, I’m doing a little better. I guess that’s because we got a solid win yesterday vs. Poznan (Editor’s Note: Gray had 18 in the win). Yeah, we needed to get back on the winning track and it’s always good to be at home playing in front of fans that are cheering for you and not againstyou! Now we have the day off, and I don’t really know what to do with the day to be honest. I’m going so see if some of my teammates want to go and do something. The town I’m in is pretty small and it seems like I’ve already eaten at every restaurant in my 2 months here…that’s the life when you’re here by yourself.
I started off cooking everyday for lunch and dinner, then slowly but surely I stopped doing that. Now I just hit up a resturant with one of my teammates. I always try food that is well know in the country I’m in and here (Poland) everyone had told me to try pierogies.I’ve had them a couple of times now and I’ve figured something out: I’m not a fan…at all. LOL…For you people that don’t know what it is, it’s like a dumpling that they can fill with all sorts of stuff. Oh, and did I mention that it’s boiled? I tried it anyways and the first bite I was like “OH NO, not for me at all!!!” Sorry if you’re reading this and you’re from Poland. Don’t get me wrong though, there are some great restaurants here. Well I’m heading out to see what’s going on in Zgorzelec, Poland today and I’ll check in later! BE BLESSED!
