Where is Waldoniel?

Wonder bread
Since my latest culinary entry drew such recriminations, I am sending you this truly wonder bread from my next stop, at an open air market stall, freezing my buns.  See, I do have simple tastes, big, coarse, tasty dark bread...

 The picture is sideways.  I edited it right but somehow it seems that blogger is acting up again and refuses to put it up straight.  Also after you guess the country I can make it this a double entry by putting a picture form the city to guess.

    A lot of choices but Russian Black Bread comes to mind. This allows me to comment that what Russians missed most about the fall of the Soviet Union was that they no longer got a free loaf per person per day. A sharp contrast to the 8BsF Bolivarian Arepas!

  4. The baguettes look French.They make wonderful bread...but who knows French baguettes are probably found anywhere in Western Europe.

  5. Looks like German rye or pumpernickle.

  10. Could be anywhere. Could be even Belgium, where you have quite French bread and also a bit of German bread varieties (the essentials, not so much the Sonnenblumenbrötchen and the like). But selling bread in the open and at these temperatures is not such a good idea, so it may be elsewhere or in some little town.

  12. No self respecting German would use a tacky table cloth like that. Poland (no disrespect)?

  13. keep guessing.......

  14. Tacky table cloths sound more Eastern European to me.
    But then again some fashionable types in France say declare certain things so ugly as to actually be pretty:

  17. Let's see, no France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Poland or Russia. But you were in Spain, so it's either Portugal or Italy....maybe

    Eastern Europe for sure, and why not?

    Western Europe is ridiculously expensive so the little quota of Euros given by Thugo go much further the farthest east that you go.

    I am thinking Prague (the brown bread is German style & the Czech Republic is just around the corner for Alemania).

    Based on the dark bread, the fact that there IS an open air market, the fact that the street has granite pavers, and the fact that it is already cold there, I am guessing north eastern Europe. So, my guess is Prague, Czech Republic.

  25. OK, not Germany, Switzerland, Russia, France, BeNeLux, or Poland...I'm going to rule out Italy and the UK, as well. How about Austria? The sweet-looking bread wrapped in plastic seems like it would fit there.

    Freezing your buns...punny.

    7 years ago, i was sent by my company to work on a SW project for a new 5-Stars hotel being built in Ljubljana of Slovenia (this is my first and only trip to EU so far which i also had a chance to visited Venice, Milan, Vienna, Budapest). The owner of this new hotel is an Austrian company.

    I had worked with Germans, Italians, Autrians, Slovenians and Swiss on this project for 3 months plus.

    One weekend, an Austrian friend that i worked with gave me a ride to Vienna. I remember i saw dark brown breads similar to the one in Daniel's picture in a super market that i visited in Vienna. That was an interesting bread that i have not seen such similar bread in Toronto super markets that i usually buy my grocery.

    Daniel, if you have time take the train to visit Budapest and Ljubljana.

    I still have a very fond memory about this train trip from Vienna (WEST EUROPE) to Budapest then back to Ljubljana (EAST EUROPE).

    Austria Daniel? Did you get the quota for three different venezolanos?

    Man you must know how to live on a shoe string.

  32. hey, my post appears before clobber's!

    Where is my price??

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congrats to Clobber.
    Daniel said to "keep guessing" two posts after my Spain guess. So I took another guess. It may be "cheating" but at least I am not a Chavista cheat.

    ReplyDelete
  34. So did clobber, just in separate posts (not to mention an earlier guess). Using that logic, the winner is 1979bp. Credit where credit is due. Though if you're citing ex aequo, it's your blog, so the "case" is already closed.

This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
