One of our favorite things about Copenhagen are all the great shawarma shops. It's meat on a stick at its best. Shawarma night used to be a special treat that we'd enjoy once or twice a month but in these weeks since James arrived we've been frequenting our favorite local shawarma shop about once a week.

Our increased patronization became real to us Sunday night when Michael walked in the shop door and the owner already knew our order and which language to give it in.

"Two larges. One with chilis."

"Um. Yes, that's us."

I love shawarma! I was introduced to it in Granada, Spain where the Arabs sold it in little shops as well. It seemed to be an Middle Eastern thing. Then I found them in an Iraqi restaurant here in Lexington this year. yum! I'm surprised they have them in Denmark though!

Mmmmmm..... shawarma..... there is a Meditteranean restaurant here in Lex that has the yummiest. And the best hummus ever.
