The horse stops in front of the cave. “Abracadabra!” The cave opens and my eyes focus on the marble table, and I see food.
The wine was flowing and the Tusk Fustis Tempranillo was worth 4 cheers.
Polo (rice) and lavash bread that could feed the whole province.
Vegetable, ground chicken and cornish hen kebabs fresh off the grill. The charred pieces melts in my mouth.
And finally, a present from a Western prince, chocolate cupcake, fresh cream and strawberries.
“Stories are not like the real world; they aren’t held back by what we know is false or true. What’s important is how a story makes you feel inside.”
