So, today we continued working at the Larnaka District Archaeological Museum’s satellite storage facility. Bill and I continued to go through our artifact collection, fixing minor issues and making sure every type of artifact is represented in our ceramic catalogue. It was a slow day, while it was not too hot, I was really tired since my jet lag always hits me harder on night 2. Plus, as a bonus, the two small children in the hotel room next door started running up and down the hallway screaming at the top of their lungs at about 5:00 AM. While I understand kids will be kids, I was disappointed that the parents did nothing to control them.
Anyway, on to important matters. Last summer I started a very important research project that I have continued this summer – rating the various flavors of potato chips on the island.
I started yesterday with Lays Cider Vinegar – made with 100% Cypriot potatoes. I have to admit that there really wasn’t much cider vinegar flavor, it was very mild and hard to taste on every chip. I give it a **** (4) on a scale of 1-10.
Tomorrow’s flavor – Cream Cheese and Bacon
To recap last year’s research:
- Argentinean Steak — ***** (5)
- Barbecue — ******** (8)
- Cheese and Onion — *** (3)
- English Cheese on Toast — ***** (6)
- Greek Salsa — **** (4)
- Mediterranean Herb — ****** (6)
- Prawn Cocktail — ********** (10)
- Salt and Vinegar — ******* (7)
- Brazilian Mango and Chile — **** (4)
- Thai Sweet Chile — ** (2)
- Oregano — ******** (8)
- Quavers with Cheese — ******* (7)
Finally, a reason to read a Cyprus blog!
