Old lady lives on a cruise ship

Eating the Globe: St Kitts & Nevis

Yesterday, I made pelau, which is related to the Silk Road rice dish of plov/pilaf. For this Caribbean entree, the recipe called for melting brown cane sugar first and cooking the rice in half regular water and half coconut water.

I've been sick for over a week now and my taste buds are 70% ineffective, but this tasted really good! I'm going to try making it again. 

Countries tried so far:
Africa: Algeria, DR Congo, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Tunisia, Zimbabwe
Asia: Afghanistan, Armenia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Cambodia, China, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanon, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, North Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Syria, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Yemen

I'm going to the Indy 500!

I just bought my plane ticket. Now I just have to scrounge up a decent seat at the race. I'm looking at Penthouse level at Sections A, B, and E next to Turn 1.

Hopefully, Alonso will win.

If anyone has tips on places to visit and eat for the weekend, please share!
