Week 1: Vegan & Plastic-free Life

When I was about 14 years old I went to an open-air cinema in Paris with my mom. It took place next to Les Abattoirs de la Villette which was a former slaughterhouse in the north of Paris. Jokingly my mom said, “I hope it is not a documentary about the slaughterhouse back in theContinue reading “Week 1: Vegan & Plastic-free Life”

3 weeks in Ecuador

The food isn’t that bad here – Cambodia

A few people who travelled to Cambodia told me that the food wasn’t that good especially compared to Vietnam. Going with low expectations but still a bit excited I have to admit, I did like their food.
