HI, I don't think it should be a problem for a 18 month baby. The weather at that time of the year is nice and dry, so camping in tents is easy at that time of the year. And the river is just next to the festival, so we can go for a quick refresh anytime.
We will have our son, who is just two month older than yours, and our 3 years old son too (will be four by then), and there are a few other people planning to come with kids too. It should be fun.
yes! I'm in NY now and I really miss the fruit in Belgium. It's mostly terrible here. So I'm living on bananas, dates and oranges. I would get a great variety at the markets and some supplementing from Delhaize. Wish I was there for the cherimoyas! enjoy!
Did you just get to brussels recently? How are you doing managing with the given fruit supply?
Hi Maria, Lighty told me you were interested in participating in the 80/10/10 translation into French. This is very good news even if you are not available right-away, as there is plenty of work to be done! Please register on my website @ http://michelnature.com/?page_id=95
That sounds like a brilliant plan. Let's do that :)
I haven't tried pomegranates yet, Do you juice them or do you just eat them?
I often eat medjoul dates. They are not completely fresh but they are still pretty juicy. They are especially great if you need a lot of calories in a handy little package :). I often eat them when I'm working long days that are physically intense.
I recently tried fresh bahri dates. They were quite good.
I'd love to share a durian. I'd love to find out what all the fuss is about. Aparently a lot of people really like durian.
I'm also not to crazy about cherimoyas because of all the pits. They are a bit annoying. Cherimoyas also go bad really quick. But I just had to try them again.
I'm also looking forward to persimmons. I know this little store in Zemst where they have small kaki's but they are the best I ever tasted. Super ripe and delicious.
I'm also looking forward to loads of tangerines. :)
Last friday I went to the market on the Place des Chasseurs Ardennais. It was quite amazing to see all these exotic fruits I have only ever read about.
The dragonfruit looked fantastic.
I ended up not buying anything because it all looked a bit expensive and the lady said that the Dragonfruit didn't really have any taste. :(
I did buy some cherimoyas at another stand :)
Hi Maria! I'm just recently realizing that bananas don't have a good effect in my body, so I haven't had to go through a winter yet which is the time I usually rely on them. Right now there is so much summer fruit, so calories are not a problem - I just got apricots, nectarines, watermelon, figs blueberries, valencia oranges and tomatoes at the market, along with cucumbers and lots of greens. And I just ordered a box of sapodillas from Taylor's Tropicals in Florida to try - can't wait! Next winter and early spring I will probably eat more cherimoyas, citrus, and imported mangoes and papayas to make up for not eating bananas. What do you usually eat? Have you had trouble getting enough calories? I've never had a problem with having access to enough fruit - if anything, I tend to overeat instead of undereat! No anorexia here, lol :-)
