I decide to head to the Gold Coast of Africa, where I’m greeted with a glorious Ghanaian “Akwaaba” (which means “welcome”) upon landing.
My first time in Accra was actually for my inaugural assignment with CNN, as the (first and only*no tea, no shade*) host of the weekly program CNN African Voices. I fell in love with the city at first sight and smell, and knew immediately that I’d be back!
A Weekend in Kapadokya…the Fabled Faerie Land of Hot Air Balloons and Whimsy.
Finally! It’s my turn to open up the cupboard doors and step into my very own, real world Narnia of Cappadocia.
The distinctive landscape was created by wind and rain, which carved the soft volcanic rock over millions of years, and the beautifully alliterative name of Cappadocia comes from Persian – it means “land of beautiful horses”.
I’m not going to lie…I almost threw up at how gimmicky the name of the chain is…but do not let that perturb you, for Eataly (HANDS DOWN) serve the best truffle ravioli on Earth. Nay, the entire Universe.
Baby’s All Right is a brunch/bar/event space, located in Williamsburg that, while not extravagant in any way, shape or form, happens to do brunch right. Whilst the decor of the place leaves a lot to be desired IMHO…
(unless of course, this is part of the new ‘industrial’ wave that seems to have taken hold of Williamsburg with an iron-clad grip, and shows no sign of letting go any time soon) the food itself is above average grub! High praise indeed.
