3 Polish beers "Perła", 8 shots of Polish nalewka and 1 shot of Serbian rakija. It means: poprawiny - "fixing", i. e. the day after wedding reception.

How are you single!? Such an injustice to the men of the world.

I don't know. I just know that the wedding was one of the 3 men I really liked (but 4 years ago he claiemd there is too big difference between our temperaments). Another one got married a few months ago. The third one died last year.

Goodness gracious. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to raise a sad subject with a little joke. I do sincerely think you are very special.

I am happy, so do not be worried ;)
And thank you so much, Porter :)

Much impressed.  I got ~1.5 liter of Antarctica (both normal Pilsen and the ice beer variety) and one shot of Amarula today, didn't get me drunk since it was along hours, but it would if I took it all at once. I'm too weak for alcohol, not ready to be a Slav yet.

It demands years of Jesus Prayer to withstand Slavic amounts of alcohol. And probably at least a few generations of Orthodox familyline.

Not necessarily true.  I've held my own with Russians by copying them. Eat something between drinks.  Then you can drink forever.  Or until you fall asleep.

Depends on the person I guess. I'd probably die in some kind of alcohol poisoning if I drank like a Slav man.

I'm a sissy Scandinavian hipster. Slavs regardless of gender are probably manlier than me.

Coffee is probably not great for me, really.  Or at least drinking, you know, water in between cups would be good...
I'll put it on my long "self improvement" list.  :D

So it would be difficult for you to visit Serbian churches and monasteries, as that's normal they offer to the pilgrims little (but strong) cups of coffee and rakija.

What kind of coffee is it? Like Turkish coffee?

Yes. But, of course, in Serbian it's Serbian coffee, in Armenian it's Armenian coffee... I rembmer one of Egyptian dialect lessons at the univesity, and when we were reading something about "Turksih coffee", our Armenian mate was ready to leave the class "because it's Armenian coffee, not the one of these murdereres".

I drank mead for the first time. It was nice at first, but the sweetness became too much for me to swallow it all. Ended up doing it anyway because I don't like to waste my money. Bad decision.

My wife brews mead and it's not sweet -- just really, really good. Her last batch aged for three years, which is supposedly the golden period according to Poles.

There's a meadery near me that makes about eight different kinds, and the sweetness varies widely between them.

Bog-standard drip coffee, and sheer bliss it was, too. Our old coffee maker died last Monday evening, and we only managed to replace it yesterday. Somehow, the French press we used over the last few days didn't cut it.

In Athonite monasteries you're offered ouzo with Turkish delight (although I bet they don't quite call it that...). Very nice.

"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

I know it as arab coffee, I learn to do it with a syrian refugee that is antiochian orthodox btw. The turkish coffee has foam and it is usually prepared with sugar, arab coffee doesn't.

For me it is the same as turkish coffee, we drink it with foam or without it depends on the preference, adding sugar is optional and if you like to put sugar with the coffee it is better to put it from the beginning.  i don't think he teach you to make the coffee of the bedouin, it is similar but it contain some other stuff.

"Guard your steps as you go to the house of God and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know they are doing evil.
Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few." - Ecclesiastes (NASB)

Safran and mastic is hard to find here, I usually use cardamom and clove when I make arab coffee.
