Welsh mofo-ing

Day 3: Somewhere outside Swansea, Wales

I feel so bad that I missed my mofo post for last night! Daiku and I are traveling through Wales this weekend and I didn't manage to find any internet access last night. However I just wanted to pop in very quickly and say that Wales is beautiful, and very veg. friendly. Our hosts in Cardiff last night asked if either of us were vegetarian or vegan and made sure to take us to a restaurant with plenty of options for me. Today, we are traveling to the coast, and the people we are staying with tonight used to own a vegan cafe! I'm sure I'll have lots of fun things to report.

Speaking of hospitality...



Here's an impromptu picnic we had at a friend's house in London. Notice how the entire picnic, save for a couple of blocks of cheese, is vegan: rye crackers, french bread, corn chips, veggies, 2 kinds of hummus (chili and plain), olives, salad with rocket, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, cucumbers, and corn, and even vegan salad dressing and margarine. This was so yummy, and I was so grateful to the host for skewing the entire thing in my direction!

More about Wales, soon to come.

I visited Wales with my parents when I was 13 and I loved it so much! Welsh accents and language are great and everyone was SO SO nice!

I also cannot express how jealous I am that you get to eat cheezly all the time. I can't even express how much I love cheezly.
