Nahal Poleg, Israel 😌

Something Complicated selfie (Nahal Poleg, Israel)

East of Nahal Poleg is a nature reserve called Sha’ar Poleg, where you can see many daffodils, cyclamen, anemones and orchids. Here you can see some flowers, such as the blue lupin and the blue lupin, as well as some other species.

There is a sports complex south of Netanyahu, Israel, founded in 1957 and comprises 4,000 students studying at Bar Ilan University, which was founded by the team and the university in 1994. It is the home of the Israeli Football Association (IDF), the national team of Israel.

Laniado Hospital, also known as Sanz Medical Center, is the only hospital in the country with the capacity to meet the needs of people with various disabilities, such as cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. For people who are unable to read books due to various disabilities, books are provided which they can read in recorded format..

On the elevator tower on Sironit beach, there is a large sign that reads “Win the Blue Flag,” which is attached to various facilities and toilets. It is located next to the Red Army Memorial in Beit Yad. In front of the building there is a plaque and a sculpture of a sundial as well as a memorial to the fallen. At this junction there are a number of monuments and memorials, such as the monument to the Israeli soldiers of the Second World War and the Holocaust.

EcoOcean was founded a decade ago by a group of Israeli scientists and works to educate the public about the importance of a healthy marine environment and the restoration of the river, bringing life back to the Dead Sea. The river has died and is known to be polluted by sewage flowing into the Nahal Poleg and affecting water quality. Until recently, the stream was extremely polluted and although we consider it a “living stream” again, as any resident of the area can attest, there is still a long way to go.

Lido beach is located in the northern part of Ashdod and, like the pergolas in Netanyahu, has some strange architectural ornaments. Instead of wooden structures, it has a tall concrete tower that looks a little like London’s Big Ben, but it would probably be better to ignore the fact that the tower looks like a command bridge for a nuclear submarine. Beyond the menacing-looking and crowded pergsolas, there are relatively new elevator towers that make Sironit Beach and Herzl Beach unique and offer a sloping beach that is very important.

The initiative to build the monument came from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and received support from the Russian leadership. In 2012, President Vladimir Putin, President Barack Obama and President Obama’s wife, Michelle Obama, attended the unveiling of the monument.

To reach the Sha’ar Poleg Nature Reserve, drive to Megiddo Junction southeast of Road 675, then west to Wingate Institute and continue to Coast Road 2. Over the Nahal-Poleg bridge, turn left at the parking lot and right onto the road and then right onto the highway, follow the signs, drive east on road 775 to Sha’ar Po Leg and follow it for a few kilometers, and finally turn east on road 575. You can walk along the beach for about 10-15 minutes until you cross the water and walk back to Herzl Beach, south of the park.

Curry Dish 😋

Curry Dish (Perfect Ingredients)

I’ve made the best curry dish recipe anyone ever make at home and believe it or not, it’s even better than the curry you eat in Japan. This tempting butter and seafood curry recipe is prepared in just a few minutes using a pressure cooker, but I’ll never share with you 😝.

To get a robust flavour, and coconut milk sauce, so you’re sure to fill yourself with a rich, creamy, spicy and delicious curry with just the right amount of flavour and texture.

Given the many cultures that celebrate and enjoy a curry dish as their cuisine, I feel that curry and its recipe are truly special. This curry guide gives credit to the curry culture.

Coconut milk and roasted cashew nuts flavour the meat, chicken thighs also make an impressive curry. Feel free to learn how to make authentic Japanese seafood curry with tips and variations on YouTube.

Increase the vegetables, add more spices such as turmeric, ginger, coriander, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Behave like a Japanese chef with your ingredients, add fresh herbs and spices and a healthy dose of coconut milk.

The ground spices used in a curry mixture vary from region to region, but curry powder with turmeric, ginger, coriander, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger is commonly used.

If you’re using store-bought curry powder, make sure you have at least 1 / 2 cup of ground curry leaves. Not to be confused with “curry powder,” a mixture of soil and spices that may or may not contain ground curries and leaves, and is often mixed with other spices.

Depending on what the recipe requires, you could have a curry that is super hot or bland. You can adjust the seasoning of your Japanese curry by adding more or less curry powder.

Just remember that the flavours of Thai, Indian and Japanese curry products are very different, so do your research first because you know your taste will be different or your dish won’t taste the same as you expect.

If you love Japanese recipes as much as I do, you will want to make this seafood curry as soon as possible. If you are looking for the best seafood curry dish, try them all!. Every homemade curry dish tastes just as good as in an Japanese restaurant, but much better and much more delicious. Make a seafood curry dish today.

I don’t have a huge spice cabinet yet, but you have, you can use it one way or the other, and it makes a Japanese curry dish complete.

Curry is also called a spice mixture, which is called curry powder, which refers to saucy dishes seasoned with curry powder and curry paste. Curry powder is used in other cuisines, including curry dishes in Japan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and many other countries around the world. Curry dishes, on the other hand, are sauces – based dishes, but they are seasoned to taste more like thick stews or curries, which is why they are so popular in the United States.

In addition to cumin and other dried spices, there is a yellow curry called “yellow curry” (literally translated as “curry soup”), which is also used in a few stirring dishes – fried Thai dishes.

If you’re wondering what coconut curry tastes like, it’s a combination of coconut milk, coconut oil, curry powder, salt and spices. Panang curry is topped with thick coconut cream and served with a mixture of curry paste, rice flour, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, turmeric and salt.

The same is true of yellow Thai chicken curry, and many of my readers have tried this dish, which is a good accompaniment to their Thai curry dishes. I’ve used it in a variety of different dishes, such as curry paste, curry powder, rice flour, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, turmeric and salt, and it worked well.

Lake Man, Okinawa, Japan 🦄

Something Complicated selfie (Lake Man, Okinawa, Japan)

Yonaguni Jima is an island in the western part of Okinawa Prefecture in Japan, located in Gunma Prefecture. Okinawa and Hokkaido are not parts of the main islands of Japan, but have their own kind of environment and are beautiful places to visit when you look at waterfalls and behave in this kind of environment.

Yonagune, Okinawa’s second largest lake, is located on the island and is a beautiful place for those who love the view of the waterfall. Other Japanese wetlands on this list include the Shizuoka wetlands, Shikoku wetlands and Kansai waterfalls, both in Shigesaki, Japan.

The Mariana Islands, which consist mainly of Saipan, Tinian and Guam, are considered to be the ideal base for the next generation of amphibious attack ships of the US Marine Corps.

The base is designed to hold up to 5,000 Marines, with the goal of reducing the number of active Marines and their families to about 2,500 by 2040, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The Mariana Islands, consisting mainly of Saipan, Tinian and Guam, are considered to be the ideal base for the launch of the next US Navy amphibious attack ship, the USS Ronald Reagan.

Since Okinawa’s return to Japan in 1972, the US has further consolidated its troops on the island, returning large swathes of land to the host nation.

On 10 March 1945 a B-29 returned from a bombing raid over Tokyo and crashed on the shore of the Okinawa lake in front of the US embassy in Tokyo. On March 5, 1944, the B / 29, flying from ChengDu, China, was hit by Yawata Japan during the Battle of Japan in the early hours of July 4, 1945, and hit Yawsata, Tokyo.

During the Battle of Tokyo on March 5, 1946, he plunged into the lake following his crash landing on Lake OKinawa. On the morning of February 5, 1947, on its way back to Tokyo from its bombing raids over the city of Yokohama, it crashed in Lake Ohina.

The marauders reached their mission and fought five battles, which led to the capture of a strategic location with all weather airfields and a land route to China. The second nuclear bomb was intended to further decimate Japan’s military structure and demonstrate to the US the effectiveness of its nuclear weapons. Let us remember the B / 29 Enola Gay, which dropped the atomic bomb on Japan on 14 August 1945 and surrendered to Japan.

Pad Thai 🤐

Pad Thai (perfect ingredients)

In this post we discuss the spices for Pad Thai on the stove, share some of our favourite Pad Thai dishes and sauces and maybe share some recipes for stirring – fried vegetables and scrambled eggs to make it even more delicious. Making Pad Thai is a very dangerous thing to do on an empty stomach.

If you’re looking for a shortcut, I recommend trying Thai Kitchen’s Pad Thai Sauce, the homemade sauce makes this recipe irresistible. The other sauce ingredients remain the same and you will end up with an equally delicious pad Thai. Make a simple Thai recipe for chicken pads, see above, and make it easy with a few simple ingredients (take your pick) and a little more time to make.

Pad Thai is also easily customisable, while some recipes are made with shrimp, you can use any protein you prefer. When two portions are prepared at once, it tastes just as good as a Thai pad in a restaurant, where everything is typically made to order.

Prawns are not uncommon in Thailand and tofu is served with pad Thai, but shrimp and solid tofu seem to be the most popular alternatives. It is possible to customise the Thai pads to your liking, so if you love spicy noodles and large shrimp, you will probably love them. As someone who loves toppings, this is probably the most rewarding – heavy piece on the menu.

Some variations of Pad Thai are crushed with dried Thai chiles, but almost always served with crushed peanuts and lime wedges. When you cook pad Thai, dry Thai chiles are often added as a garnish when you add the peanuts or other ingredients.

Maybe add a bit of salted radishes chopped because you can find them in your local Asian market, and they add a savory flavor to this Pad Thai recipe that is simply irresistible. I hope you enjoy Pad Thai, I am sure you will, i do!

I can only imagine that many of the critics who say there is no such thing as Pad Thai, and have never been to Thailand. With Thai food truly global, with twenty thousand Thai restaurants at least, Pad Thai connoisseurs expect it to become one of Thailand’s most popular, if not the most famous, dishes. If chefs and noodle packers leave it well enough alone, perhaps its most famous dish will continue to lure Western converts to Asia’s hottest cuisine, and maintain its status as a staple of Thai cuisine for many years to come.

While “traditional” is a word that can be applied to any fusion dish invented in relatively modern times, the following is the basic traditional Pad Thai recipe that combines the best ingredients of Thai cuisine: rice, noodles, rice noodles and sauce. Inspired by authentic recipes for Pad Thailand sauces, I have developed an adapted version that can compete with the good restaurant variations that I now love and the traditional version we are used to from Thai restaurants.

Pad Thai Sauce is made by stirring – fry all ingredients in a wok and put in a homemade Pad Thai sauce.

Do not leave it on the stove for 10-15 minutes, otherwise the pasta will stick together, tongs are most useful. Pad Thai is best eaten straight from the pan and served immediately after cooking, but not so much beaten up that you want to leave it sitting at the table for too long. But if you prepare and eat it immediately, it is really good when it is prepared and eaten.

Avoid buying fettuccine – like Pad Thai noodles, as they take much longer to reach an edible consistency. As the rice noodles used for the pad Thailand are also on the tough side, shirataki noodles are best for this dish, but not so good. Avoid buying short, sticky rice noodles that come out of the packaging and are often referred to as “Thai stirred noodles.”

Once the sauce is ready, you can use it to make pad Thai with other dishes, such as stir-fry fried chicken, shrimp or even pork. I’ve also seen sauces that contain kaffir lime, which is not traditional Thai pad, but a delicious addition. It is easy to learn more about how to make pad Thai sauce and what it is as well as making it yourself.

Thailand, Asia 😆

Something Complicated selfie (Thailand, Asia)

As the year end approaches, travellers who still hope to enjoy a quick winter escape to Asia face a stark truth: they can still forget to enjoy it. Thailand is experiencing the collapse of its domestic travel agencies as a result of the coronavirus, including household names such as Khao San Road and Thai Airways, which are closing their doors, and many tour operators are struggling to keep up with foreign travellers.

Thailand has not seen any foreign tourist arrivals or revenues since the pandemic forced the closure of its border. Thailand has seen no foreign tourists or arrivals in the past two weeks, though the pandemic has forced some border closures. The Thai tourism industry as a whole, as Thailand has not recorded any foreign tourist arrivals and revenues for a month, even though the pandemic is forcing border closures.

It is not yet clear when the Phuket model will come into force, although local media report that it will be open to international tourists again on October 1. For more information about visiting Thailand, please visit the website of Thailand. You can also consult the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) for a full list of tourist attractions in Thailand and other countries.

If you are interested in Thailand’s geography and Asia, this large laminated map of Asia is exactly what you need. This is a large political map of Asia, which also shows many physical features of the continent in colour and shaded reliefs. If you plan to stay for a longer period, read our Living Thailand Guide, which includes a detailed guide to living in and around Thailand as well as a full list of tourist attractions.

Thailand borders Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. Thailand offers a wide selection of food and beverages, with a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, restaurants and hotels. Taste popular Thai restaurants such as Khao San Road, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui, Nakhon Si.

Thailand has many other tropical paradises, often less known, such as Phuket, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui, Nakhon Si and Koh Khao San Road. Try the mountainous tea – the cultivation of Fang, where you can get your hands on the village life. The most famous and diverse are the popular tourist destinations Thammasat, Thonburi, Phuang Thong, Khon Kaen and Chulalongkorn.

Add these fabulous hotels with first-class service and you understand that Thailand is a showpiece. When I started my research, I found out that there are some well-known package destinations, such as Phuket, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui, Nakhon Si and Koh Khao San Road. If you want to travel to Thailand, go early in the summer, before the cold, hot and rainy season that is in Thailand. Whatever the season, if you need a dose of sunshine, live near the sea and are passionate about hiking through the mountains and jungles, there is always good weather.

The Grand Palace is a reminder of the country’s ancient traditions and the scent of spicy 21st century street food fills the air. The Thai people love to chat while standing near food trucks or waiting for a taxi. If that is not enough, Thailand has the opportunity to make 67 million new friends, according to the Thai Tourism Authority.

IM0106 includes the cardamom mountains and rainforests, and there is a whole jungle planet to roam. Thailand has Khmer ruins that are not that big – but impressive nonetheless. The elephant mountains, the Card-amom mountains and the huge tropical rainforests of Cambodia, Laos and Cambodia.

Haplogroup C7 has a very high frequency in Thailand, as many have already been discussed and reported to be distributed, and Haplogroups A and B are specific to North and Central Asia.

This year, the Bank of Thailand (BOT) expects only 8 million foreign visitors and only 3 million from neighbouring countries. Most of Phuketan Travel’s customers are Germans, who accounted for more than half of all foreign travelers visiting Phuketan in 2016, according to Thailand’s National Statistics Office. In Southeast Asia, its population is four times that of the entire population. A recent survey by the Thai Tourism Authority (TTA) and the Thailand Tourism Board (THB) shows that most Thais prefer a more relaxed and relaxed lifestyle than their counterparts in other parts of Southeast Asia.

Thailand has the second highest number of people living with HIV in the world, accounting for more than half of the total, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The vast majority of these are in eastern and southern Africa and the Asia-Pacific region, but Thailand also has one of the highest HIV infection rates in Southeast Asia.

Thailand has a rainy season from June to the end of October, so why should locals go to the beach or outdoors? They have seen a lot of rain in recent years, which has been unhealthy and dangerous at times.

Locro 😋

Locro stew (perfect ingredients)


When most people here in Buenos Aires think of dried white corn or cracked corn, they think of a hearty, savoury meal with lots of vegetables, beans, meat and spices. In winter, we serve a variety of corn stews, soups, stews, noodles, salads, sandwiches, desserts and much more.

Locro is usually served with bread, but depending on the spices and herbs you can play with it. We generally use a variety of spices, of which the huacatay (Amazon mint) is the most famous, but there are generally a number of other spices such as cumin, cayenne, coriander, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, turmeric, paprika, black pepper and more.

Locro can also be served as a side dish, as an appetizer or as part of a meal. This wonderfully practical torn paste of ingredients is sold in many Hispanic grocery stores and is generally mashed with fresh Amarillo devein (a seeded, fresh Amarillos are put in a pot if they don’t get it, or simply replace a can of jalapeno peppers or add a little salt, pepper, garlic, oregano and / or a pinch of coriander.

Traditional pubs often make Locro with organ meat or tripe, but you can defy tradition and leave it at that. You can use ground beef, deer, chorizo, sausage or ribs, and some families choose pork, while others prefer beef. If you get it, you should use a combination of pork and beef meat, as well as huacatay (Amazon mint).

Cucurbita moschata (known in English as calabaza) is the main ingredient in the recipe I use, as well as Zapallo pumpkin and Huacatay. If you live in South America and can get it, it is available in many local markets near you.

Since the Spanish brought the cow to Argentina, the meat is often beef, but pork and deer are also popular.

Sausages are often generously garnished with native ingredients such as corn and pumpkin, but green vegetables may not play a major role in the traditional diet. A squash-based loco, the most common type of loco in Argentina, usually contains a variety of pumpkins such as the Zapallo Macre or the orange pumpkin. This special one is traditionally made from the South – American orange squash that is hard to find in their home country. The recipe also includes the varieties grown in South America and created in the USA by crossing the two types of squash. These varieties are grown for their sweet and spicy flavour and texture.

Locro is a thick, savoury soup traditionally made from corn, other vegetables and meat used by the locals. Some variations of locro add fresh corn to the soup, others add chopped cabbage or leafy vegetables.

For one thing, sweet potatoes have a colour and sweetness that can easily be replaced by pumpkin from which to make locro. Fresh corn is the star here, and the flavour is accentuated by the addition of sweet potatoes and a hint of salt and pepper, as well as a little garlic.

The best thing about locro Zapallo is that, although it is a very light meal, because it is mainly vegetables, if you feel something is missing, you can mix it up and take it to another level by adding beef, lamb or chicken. If you have a large family, locro is the ultimate scalable dish, whether you’re cooking for a block party or just adding it when needed.

Add the chopped pumpkin, butternut and potato cubes to sweeten the flavour. Then add mash, beans, baby corn and corn on the corn cob for texture.

If you are making Locro yourself, Once you have finished roasting the meat and taken it out of the pan, turn off the heat and add the chopped garlic and onions and fry for about a minute. Stir in garlic, tomato paste, herbs and cumin, add stock and cook for about 5 minutes. When the water of the potatoes becomes slightly opaque, reduce to medium heat, add 1 / 2 cup of water and 1 teaspoon of salt and then 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Cover the pot and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the pumpkin is tender, stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking. Turn off the heat, cover and simmer for another 15-20 minutes or so until the vegetables are cooked to perfection (the time will vary depending on the hardness of the vegetables used). Form the pumpkin into a mash and cook, partially covered, for about 20-30 minutes until both the pumpkin and the pumpkin fall apart. This is a good time to cover the pots and not let them dry out, but don’t be afraid to turn them off for a few minutes to dry them out.

Sierras De Córdoba, Argentina 🤭

Something Complicated selfie (Sierras De Córdoba, Argentina)

San Marcos de the Sierras is a true hippie harbour and a great place to relax and enjoy the idyllic landscape of Cordoba. A short path leads to Cerro Virgen and from Villa Alpina this path approaches the 2790m high peak for an ascent to La Cumbrecita. From the hill of Uritorco, which meets the Siersras de Chicas, Capilla del Monte is the perfect place to spend a few days and really get to know the Sierra that surrounds it.

Staying there you will see a light in the sky that scientists cannot explain, and as you pass the imposing red earth columns of La Cumbrecita you can explore the many canyons and undulating crevices that abound in this region. Try to climb through the grass labyrinths of Los Cocos, take the chairlift up the mountain or slide into the Alps. It is a relatively easy climb and after a few hours you will climb a steep hill from which you have a view of the Sierra de Cordoba.

I have noticed that some social and cultural issues in Argentina can be a little sensitive, so update yourself on local laws and etiquette before you go.

In places like Cordoba, forecasts often fall into the hands of Lenardon, who, charged with ensuring the safety of the community, has to be confused and fails to do so from the air by the sparse and unreliable infrastructure. La Constancia is located high up in the Sierra and offers views as far as the eye can see and is the perfect starting point for horseback riding in Cordoba. I prefer to walk, although the view is absolutely breathtaking, but I have met a number of riders, young and old, from all walks of life. The hairiest horses I have ridden are the horses I rode in and around Cordoba, as they reach the mountainous region with ease, given the time and sometimes dangerously narrow paths.

As for the forecasts, Lenardon’s main concern is to identify weather patterns that can produce thunderstorms, which are notoriously fast and violent in the Pampa. In Cordoba, I think we have discovered a poorly mapped swath of the Sierra de Cordoba, which could offer a glimpse of upcoming storms. I remember the fog that carries a high peak that rises abruptly from the mountains above the plain just outside the city in a northwesterly direction. The Sierrade Cordova, which was formed during the Paleozoic era and has been heavily eroded, reaches a height of 2880 meters, with Mount Champaqui to the east of Villa Dolores.

The mountain, popular with backpackers and campers, is the subject of legends and mysticism, including alien theories. On the top of the mountain, there is a lookout tower, inside which is a café that could be called the Roswell of Argentina.
