I moved to the Czech Republic last Thursday to finish my grad degree, and I discovered that my dorm only comes equipped with a hot plate. A hot plate? Also, my previous tenants left behind three wine glasses and one fork. Between my student teaching, learning what “gluten” is in Czech, and buying some actual pots to cook things in, I’ve got my work cut out for me. But honestly, what’s missing silverware compared to an adventure? And I’ve been nursing an itch to travel for… oh, about two and a half years now, ever since I began my graduate program.
So I’m at this interesting place in my life. Which is why I haven’t posted in a week— traveling takes up time.
And now to reassure you: I’m not letting this blog lapse, but it is going to shift focus a little. Still vegetarian recipes and vegetarian restaurants, but this time, from overseas! V 8 Mile’s Facebook will still have links to the latest veggie news in the metro Detroit area, thanks to the magic of the Internet and my love of Detroit.
Also, this John Lennon is stuck in my head.
