Mealtime

At races in Asia, they always try to accommodate the western riders at breakfast time by serving western dishes. Mostly, this is scrambled eggs and what seems to be an attempt at bacon. 

Here in the US we are staying in a house with a couple of teams. As a result, we have a range of nationalities under one roof. There are Argentinians, Germans, kiwis, Australians, an Austrian, Swiss and Hong Kong rider. 

Meal times are especially interesting as we search for the comfort foods that we are all used to. As a result, mealtimes have a mixture of flavours. From hotdogs and burgers to tortillas and dips to bratwurst and sauerkraut. Everyone is catered for... well almost. 

Our Hong Kong rider is struggling a little with western food and is missing the dishes he is used to. After racing so much in Asia, this is somewhat of a backflips on the usual. So for the next meal, we are venturing out to the local Chinese restaurant and we will see how it compares to the real thing.
