Recipe: Roasted Marinated Lamb

As soon as my wife was out of the door (she is swimming somewhere in Mediterranean sea as I write those lines), I was back to my old ways...
So today, my dear readers, we are going to eat meat... and to be more specific a marinated, roasted lamb! To prepare this dish, you will need:
  • Lamb
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red chili (to make life more spicy...)
  • 1-2 bay leaves
  • Rosemary, oregano and grounded black pepper
  • And... a lot of patient
First of all, mix it all together and marinate for at least 8 hours in refrigerator.
When the meat is ready, put it in the oven for 200-220 degrees Celsius for about 30-40 minutes and enjoy your roast.
I have removed all the dogs from the last picture as Mr. anonymous (I KNOW WHO YOU ARE) suggested.

Madrid, The Perfect End of a Hectic Week

What a week! 3 countries with in 4 days! Belive me or not, it involves a lot of air miles and CO2 emission...
Now, it all come to an end in Madrid (the last city of this European tour), the city of sun, chorizos and wine...
I won't bore you too much except mentioning that is was damn hot, 42C during the day and 33C during the night (half past midnight), but then again, what else would you expect in Spain during a summer?
So, adiĆ³s my friends and enjoy the photo album: Madrid- The Perfect End Of A Hectic Week.

Hot Breeze in Lisbon

I can not believe that I’m writing those lines, but I’m kind of enjoying hot weather in here. Right now, I’m in Lisbon, Portugal (for a second time this month) for a short project. Anyway, 10 minutes ago I was walking Av. de Liberdade and the temperature is still 26C (and that is at 23:00), but after having a decent meal (with excellent local wine) it is kind of nice. As long as you don’t have to wear a suite and go to work in that temperature, that is not too bad...


P.S.: Tomorrow morning, I will have to don a suite and go to work...

Randomness in a Chaotic World

London is a big city... 14-16 million residents city... a very big city. So, what is a chance to meet a person you know?
Apparently, that can happen. Yesterday, I was working from our Austin Friars office in the city (for second time during the whole month) and while walking back from a lunch I met A. (a real name) who worked in Castle Trading office (where Comsec Consulting UK rented a office space). As it turns out, she works in the office next door (literally, next door) and started on the same date as I did in Verizon Business UK.
Now, how bizarre is that?
