Hi Mum and Dad,
Hope all is well and you get this email. 
Its been interesting, the food and the people are both nice.  I have spotted a friendly cat that told me that is was not the lunch time special so that urban myth is now busted.  I have also discovered that you can smoke a rather long cigarette whilst riding a motor cycle through the busy streets, I witnessed this today, I dont think it is something that I will try, but it is nice to know that it can be done.  The other startling thing I found is that some taxi drivers engage in the dangerous passtime of trimming their nasal hair while waiting for a faire.  You may ask why this is dangerous?  well there is usually a line of taxis behind him so all that is needed is one minor distraction, a bump from behind and hey presto you have one extra hole in your nose. 
We did find a restaurant?? that was toast based...that is all the food there had toast...the toast came with many toppings and was cut into little bite size bits, but it still looked like a slice of toast...I dont think I can ever go back to just a slice not in neat cube form ever again...it changed my world.
so bye for now, miss you two and the rest of the mob
lots of love
jen and rosi
