>> πŸ‡΅πŸ‡ͺ Peruvian Food Is My Favorite Cuisine And Here Is Why! 🍽️ 🍀🍚🌽🍲🍹

Image
I had a great dinner the other night - so great I thought I should share! Mostly, why Peruvian food is my favorite cuisine. To understand this, we have to go waaay back to my time in NYC. This is where I had Peruvian food for the first time. I used to live in the borough of Queens and there at Sunnyside to be precise, was one amazing, yet tiny Peruvian restaurant I still fondly remember. On my way home I often stopped by there to pick up dinner for 6$!!!! That included a quarter chicken, rice, fries (or chips as they say here) a salad and a delicious Peruvian dip. (or 2 because I asked for some extra) I often had long days and that was my reward.  So good!! 1 salsa, 2 salsas? All the salsas!! Editor-in-Chief of this Blog around Easter Virgin mojito - I am still not fond of alcohol even though I am an adult now So he re in London, I have not found many (good) Peruvian restaurants besides this one so far! The food was delicious, the company was great and the place unsurprisingly packed.

>> 🎭 London Theatre: Two Strangers Carry A Cake Across New York! 🍰 πŸ—½

Image
Hello to all of you creative and London theatre-interested readers! We have just seen a young, fresh and new musical! About a British guy who is traveling to NYC for the first time ever! Which explains his excitement and curiosity about this journey. After I did some research I found out that  Two Strangers  is a British musical by Jim Barne and Kit Buchan. The play was first produced in 2019 in Ipswich and Northampton. A new production opened at Kiln Theatre in 2023, already starring the current cast: Dujonna Gift and Sam Tutty.  In April 2024 - just about 4 weeks ago, it transferred to the  Criterion Theatre  in the West End. Under its original title The Season, the show received a Stage Debut Award for Best Composer, Lyricist or Book Writer as well as the Stiles & Drewe Mentorship prize. It was truly impressive! From the super versatile stage, which was round and served as a conveyor belt for bags while often spinning, to the suitcases with their myriad functions across various

>> Interesting Read πŸ“š I Bought A Book About The Things That Nobody Knows..

Image
Hello again dear readers of my Blog! I know it has been a while since we recommended a book via the IBTN Book Club. The other day I found this book in a section of the local post office. Someone left it on top of the shelf for me to find. When I saw the title, I was interested immediately!  Normally, books are filled with wisdom and information so that we can learn, grow and have our questions answered.  Not this one.  With this book, you can educate yourself on all things that remain unclear, as it covers over 500 topics that humanity has STILL not figured out! To be precise 501 mysteries of life, the universe and everything. I had to buy it. It is interesting to me! From A like Aardvarks to Y like Yeti.. so many things that are still a mystery until this day. I am currently reading it - lots of things to think about.  And yet, there is at least one thing that has never been unclear, even before purchasing this book: I am, I always have been and I always will be a geek. And that's

>> Because The World Seems To Have Forgotten About Love - Here Is A Reminder: Love At First Sight πŸ’œ

Image
Hello dear readers and welcome back to this Blog! First of all, Happy New Year to you! πŸŽ‰ It has been a while since we have seen a new, good romantic movie. It has been a while since we have seen a good new movie in general. 😌 There seem to be few and far in between these days. So we were pleasantly surprised when we found 'Love At First Sight' on Netflix! This film is a refreshingly well made and insightful movie full of heart. We would say statistically 90% of people miss the opportunity of love at first sight, because they are constantly glued to their phones and hardly ever look up. If they do, they don't bother or care to start a conversation. But this is just an estimate. πŸ™‚ Considering life in a big and hectic city. Not so for Hadley and Oliver. Thankfully! Not only do they notice each other, they actually even start a conversation and show interest in one another! Almost unheard of these days, we know. This film is unexpected in many ways. From the ever so funny na

Wenn auch Du denkst dass der einzig richtige Weg,  aus der sich immer weiter zuspitzenden Lage in der Ukraine, GesprΓ€che und Verhandlungen statt immer weiterer Waffenlieferungen sind, kannst Du hier die Petition fΓΌr den Frieden unterschreiben. Außerdem findet am 25sten Februar um 14 Uhr eine Kundgebung vor dem Brandenburger Tor in Berlin statt . Desto mehr Teilnehmer sich dort einfinden, desto mehr wird der Gesuch nach Verhandlungen die zu Frieden fΓΌhren kΓΆnnen, gehΓΆrt. Solltest Du also gerade vor Ort sein und diese Einstellung teilen, kannst Du dich gern den anderen anschließen die ebenfalls durch Vernunft etwas bewirken wollen,  als die Krise durch weitere Waffenlieferungen immer weiter anzuheizen. Hier kannst Du weitere Informationen finden.

>> London Theatre: When Matthew Modine Entered The Stage I Was Like 'Papa!' And He Is Not Even My Father..

Image
Hello dear readers,  As I've previously mentioned, I like going to the theatre! The latest play I have seen, was 'To Kill A Mockingbird' - a new play by Aaron Sorkin - screenwriter of one of my 3 favourite movies of all time 'A Few Good Men'. Based on a novel by the American author Harper Lee. Matthew Modine was very engaging in the leading role of Atticus Finch. I mainly know him as Elevens (evil) 'PAPA' from 'Stranger Things'.  😊  You would think maybe it could be enough for him to be well known for that series but he really put in the effort, to make this stage role his own. Matthew Modine as Elevens Papa in 'Stranger Things' Convincing performance and once a again good ticket prices because of the app I recommended to you before - TodayTIX. Going to the theatre is an inspiring and often times uplifting experience. The theatre world is fascinating to me! I am always amazed by the talented actors I get to see live on stage. πŸ™‚ Production i

> Opinion: πŸ’΅ The FTX Debacle πŸ’» Happened Because The Majority Of People Just Could Not Admit That They Don't Get Crypto Either

The Emperors New Clothes 2022 version You want critical political analysis? You want cutting-edge journalism?  Why did you come here then? Let me be the first one to say: I do not exactly understand how Crypto works. I know it is a digital currency that can be traded online. And I know that the cryptocurrency Bitcoin for example, is being created by mining which takes an extensive amount of energy/electricity (hello sustainability and saving the planet?) If you are looking for a definition online, you will find this: ' Bitcoin mining is  the process of creating new bitcoins by solving extremely complicated math problems that verify transactions in the currency . When a bitcoin is successfully mined, the miner receives a predetermined amount of bitcoin. ' Suggested business model of FTX/Alameda research via this video The only conclusion that one can draw from the FTX debacle caused by its CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is, that the majority of people do not get the concept of crypto eit
