Last weekend, I went to Heidelberg to attend the first European meetup of the PPK forums. Turned out to be a tiny meetup and two sneaky ladies being not European at all, but we still had loads of fun.
On Saturday, we walked up to the castle.
I hadn't been to Heidelberg before (in fact, I've never travelled South Germany) and it seemed like a totally different world. Still, everybody is raving how "typically German" it is. Anyway, I did like it- it's a very picturesque city and totally worth a visit when you're in the area.
After the touristy bit, we explored an Asian grocery and the local Alnatura market (big organic supermarket chain in Germany) and went to Anna's place for a lazy dinner.
Rachel slicing the best seitan o'greatness ever (with bell pepper in it!).
The finished salad.
See what I mean? Pasta with bought basil pesto and crack tofu (with all sorts of herbs and dried tomato) ^^
Shiny happy vegans, eating their tofu.
Then there was pie (and cupcakes, but I didn't take any pictures of them):
On Sunday, we went to a vegetarian restaurant called Effulgence Waves. The owners belong to a sort of cult around an Indian guru named Sri Chinmoy. Strange place, but great eats.
I ordered their "Japanese Garden" plate:
They also did a lot of Mexican stuff:
