Vacation spots you recommend?
I can almost always find something to recommend in a location but, if I had to pick one spot, Belgrade consistently ranks at or near the top of my favorite travel experiences. The history of the city is evident everywhere and Belgrade has its unique brand of night life, grit, and some of the best food I’ve ever had. In addition, the Belgrade experience is extremely affordable.
Favorite dish to cook?
Anything Nigerian! Specifically, jollof rice, which, very briefly, is a rice dish cooked in a very flavorful tomato-based broth. Jollof Rice is a very popular West African dish but, it goes without saying, that the Nigerian version of the dish surpasses all other versions.
