Hamseen - The Hot Desert Wind Hits Kever
Second day of hamseen here. Air conditioner working at full. I discovered that my fishmonger sells salmon for 80 shekel a kilo but for only 10 shekel the cuts with back bone. So instead of salmon head I am buying salmon residues and boiling them with curry powder. The resulting soup has a bright yellow - saffron color with rich fish oil drops floating around. My mother said that I am like my late grandfather Gyula, of Jaszbereny, hoarding money and real estate. She knew me well and she knew her father-in-law (I didnt). It is our nature and I find myself ending my days as his clone; I didnt set out to be like him but could not help it.
