Chapter 8
Food


I can always have something to eat at my hotel. The fridges and freezers are always open. There are a lot of products there. You can always find cheese and sausages, fruit and vegetables, milk and juices there. If you want something sweet you can take cakes or ice-cream. If you like English tea, you can find cream in the fridge.

Some students who live in the hotel cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All meals are at their hours. You can have breakfast from 7 a.m. till 10 a.m. Lunch is from 12 p.m. till 3 p.m. Dinner is from 6 p.m. till 9 p.m. If you come to the dining-room at this time you see a lot of big trays and large pots with covers. You take a plate and put everything you want on it.

For breakfast you can have pancakes, toasts, scrambled eggs, or sausages. There are many types of cereals (cornflakes), too. You can have them with normal milk (3% fat) or skimmed milk (0.5% fat). For lunch you can have soups, meat, chicken, or fish with potatoes, pasta, rice, or vegetables. For dinner you can have meat, chicken, or fish with potatoes, pasta, rice, or vegetables, too. But they also cook something sweet: puddings, cakes, or pastry.

After the meal is over, students put the trays with the remaining food into the fridges. They always put a sticker to mark the day. They also throw old food out of the fridges. This is clever. You can always eat fresh food and the fridges are always clean.

During my first lunch, I look at my American friends. Almost all of them take big plates and put a little of everything there. Then they eat all this and drink CocaCola or juices. I do the same but I can’t eat so much. I decide to have less the next day because I don’t want to be fat.

After 3 days, I begin to have problems. I am hungry all the time. My stomach aches. After I eat something, it stops aching. But it begins to ache again after half an hour. This is terrible! So I decide to eat as I always do in Moscow. Now I don’t mix, for example, chicken with meat or fish and potatoes with rice or pasta anymore. Hooray! I feel normal after 2 days.
