New way to chop garlic…

But not one I am going to try anytime soon! Sometimes we have to take a shortcut through the hospital clinic on our way to our work area each day, and it is sooooo interesting. It is very clean (but very open air), but very old. There is a large stove on which there are always kettles with boiling water or oil. Men attend the stove.

On the floor are women: they take sliced garlic and use a roller in what sort of looks like a painting container that you use a roller with. She rolls and rolls the garlic until it is a paste. The smell is great!

Another woman was on the floor slicing potatoes and she had a very unique way of doing this that involved a big knife and her foot and hands!!

Have photos of these. JUst incredible. Later in the day I had to cut through the kitchen again, and some of the kitchen workers were taking a nap on a rug on the floor of the kitchen. Humbling and inspiring at the same time.
