By: Dr. Sabine Elisabeth Roper

I wrote this book to support our fundraising. I wanted to have something original to give back to donors. Another reason was, that our volunteers enjoyed our food and wanted to know, how to cook it. This was an easy way to achieve this. Some dishes they learnt to cook during their stay with us, but not all and it was nice for them to look them up again at home. As our youngest son has Celiac this book contains many Gf dishes as well as vegetarian dishes. Burmese food is ...

Răsfoitorii acestei cărţi măcar vor privi ilustraţiile colorate din CentroAmerica, iar pe lȃngă imagini vor citi cel puţin cȃteva rȃnduri edificatoare... Fiindcă nimeni astăzi nu mai are timp! De ce instantaneu? Pentru că jurnalul e scris la primă mȃnă, pe locul vizitat, cu idei scurte ca nişte blitz-uri, cu economie de cuvinte – în această lume în care vremea ...

Aşa procedează cercetătorii ştiinţifici care purced în expediţii. It is dangerous to walk through the rain forest because of snakes and in...
