I was told Vittorio’s hotel also has a restaurant, but I didn’t try it.
We used our host’s kitchen, in the courtyard, and I had my opportunity to cook.
In the pic you can see a wonderful looking (and tasting) “frittata con patate” resulted from the cooperation between an Italian cook, me, and a French one, Roger. They say: “too many cooks spoil the broth”, but this mixed effort was quite edible.
Favorite Dish: Frittata con patate!
What I enjoyed most was sitting in the small patio, beside a tiny fire, sipping the strong tuareg tea, gazing at the star-full sky and chatting with lovely people in a language I didn’t know and realizing we could understand each other. Wonderful desert stories….
Luggage and bags:
Bring some batteries you can give your host. People there really need batteries. The only kind they can get their hands on is from Nigeria and go flat in a while.
Some pens can bring a smile to children’s faces, but it’s really hard to understand whether it is a good thing or not to go around giving out pens…
