Not to say it was a gourmet menu but British Airways served a nice chicken curry – hot, spicy, well salted and two types of curry salsa. Better than I expected 😉 Somewhat special was the dessert: Banana Cake, done by Eli's Cheesecake Chicago. For this time, I just let the package speak for itself:

Hey, that's just 46 gramms of a tiny little cake – r u sure?! WTF – once again, malnutrished children in ADPs and something western culture cheesecake containing such an amount of (unhealthy) ingredients? In Nicaragua I have eaten fruits, esp bananas which really have been harvested at the right point – you taste the difference! Going crazy…
