Rebuilding homes (and hope) after the 2004 tsunami
On the 26th of December 2004, exactly nine years ago, a tsunami hit Sri Lanka, Thailand and Indonesia, killing an estimated 230.000 people in fourteen countries. The province of Aceh in Indonesia was the worst hit area. In the summer of 2007, I spent a few days with an organisation that helped rebuild homes in the most devistated areas of Aceh. Here’s my photo story.

Five weirdly named local snacks you should try
You’re in a foreign country, you’re hungry but you just can’t figure out what the weirdly named snacks on the menu card stand for… I’d say: go ahead and try them anyway! Here’s five fast snacks and genuine local specialties that will make your taste buds sing, from Russia to Canada…
1. Canadian Poutine
French fries made even greasier… Oh yes, it can be done! You just add a thick layer of brown gravy and cheese curds. It’s particularly popular in Québec and sold in any pub, snack bar and fast food diner. Poutine means ‘mess’ in French – the perfect word to describe the dish. A big bowl, dripping with sauce and cheese and sometimes other equally greasy ingredients like bacon or pork. Even though it looks like food that has been thrown away by someone else before you, it’s actually quite yummy after a full day of walking around and exploring the city.
2. Welsh rarebit
Rarebit is basically toasted bread with cheese, but the Welsh add that little bit of extra to make the dish really stand out. Like the savory melted cheddar cheese on top and my personal favorite: the varieties of chutney. Why the dish is called rarebit? Our guide couldn’t really tell for sure, but one explanation is that the original spelling was actually ‘rabbit’. It was a way of mocking the poor Welsh population: they couldn’t afford to eat real rabbit unlike other populations in the UK, so they ate cheese and toast instead. Hence, saying you’re eating ‘Welsh rabbit’ when you’re actually eating cheese. Over time, the spelling changed and became rarebit. Today the dish is no longer considered a poor man’s meal. It’s a very popular lunch meal and even fancy restaurants serve it. They add all kinds of ingredients like fresh veggies (corn, paprika etc), béchamel sauce and even beer. Order Welsh rarebit at a specialty Welsh cheese restaurant or cafe (like Madame Fromage in Cardiff) and you’re in for a real culinary treat!
