On a lighter note I have been enjoying the food here – fresh and filling. There is a comforting consistency in colour of the things on offer – mostly yellow with a little white and brown. Somehow, in the land of plenty, someone has managed to steal all of the fruit and vegetables! Nobody dares talk of it, I know, but the result is I have started craving vegetables and fruit… If it continues I shall be forced to seek them out but am not sure if Walmart will help.
I recognise that driving around in my gold sofa with wheels, and sitting in seminar rooms has been demanding so I need the carbs and protein… But if I want it or not, the humble tomato, lettuce, banana and grape are truly elusive in Champaign. Tomorrow I will start my quest to seek them out!
