First video – Frietjes!
When I woke up yesterday morning, I checked the mails on my iPhone and found this question “Do they also eat French Fries?”
French Fries are invented in Belgium (Americans thought they were in France when they discovered, but where situated in the French-speaking part of Belgium). It’s a big part of our own culture, so I was eager to shoot the answer! I jumped out of my bed with my head full of ideas!
I walked in the streets, took videos of all kind of food (I do receive many questions about the typical food), and made new friends by shooting their mushrooms and daily dishes!
Of course, I don’t go to the main centre of Mexico City. I have my own town where I can find anything, and people know me by now. It felt great to be back in San Bernabe! The people are so kind. They even cheered for the girl of the intro “Yes, we also have French Fries here in Mexico!”.
So I ended up eating French Fries with peel, digging them out of the pool of ketchup, liquid cheese and spicy salsa… And I had a rough time finishing half a liter of pineapple juice ’cause I wanted to hang out in the restaurant. But well, it’s hardly a sacrifice!
