On the menu at the mosque – 2

This extract is from ‘Travel Tales from Exotic Places like Salford’

“I bring you Raspberry cold drink and a test of the Turnip juice just to see.”

So he brings me both – I taste the Turnip juice.

“That is good I like it.”

“It is too strong for you – the Raspberry is better for you.”

“Well I like the Turnip juice.”

“OK, but English people don’t like the Turnip – too strong they say, not sweet.”

We left it at that but the Turnip juice is good although it does leave a lingering afterburn long after the food has gone down.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
