Note: first of all thank for the sympathetic comments of you all! My last post wasn’t an adieu, but just a way to tell you that I want to find a different way to food blog! πŸ™‚

When I was little, in Italy they were showing on tv one of the saddest movie I ever seen (right after Remi, the saddest anime of all!!!): Incompreso. Basically it was the story of a motherless child misunderstood by his father… I’m in pain just thinking about it!!!
Anyway, back to my point!
Us, food bloggers: we are a misunderstood specie of this tech world!
How many times have you found yourself taking a picture of some juicy dish in front of you and then feeling weirdly looks all around you??? Many… Too many πŸ˜‰

The picture above was taken last september, at one of the Wagamama in London (here my “review”): I was eating alone, as often happens when I’m in London, as I’m there ALONE, working (insert Sara with sad face here), and I had to (I really felt the urge!) take a picture of the (average) food I was eating, to witness the fact that Wagamama is not so good as everybody says (better than the average fast food, but for the price I’ve paid, way too much, I would have preferred a REAL Japanese or Chinese or Thai alternative)…
The place was crowded and I had to share a table with a large group of English people.
Do I have to explain you the weird looks I’ve got???
I’m not form Mars: I am just a food blogger!!!
I even heard someone saying: “Oh my, she’s taking pictures of her food” with a disbelieved tone…
I should find a line to answer to people like that: nice, funny, simple, and maybe that won’t involve any strange word that will mathematically point me out as a foreign…
Ok, I ask to much: let’s stick to a nice smile!!! πŸ™‚

    I find a long, hard stare after photo-taking tends to silence the commenters!

    That movie… it makes me feel pain too, just thinking of it. Stomach cramps to be precise.

    And I got weird looks as I was taking this pic just a few hours ago!

    Wagamama is so over-rated. Need I say more? Would never recommend it for anyone. If you want good and real Japanese, go to the restaurant in the Japan Center at Piccadilly. The Udon Soup is amazing, and you actually feel like your in Japan!

    I know exactly what you mean about the food photo taking – when I was in Frankfurt recently, we were sharing a large table with two guys who kept laughing at me :-/

    (I don’t like Wagamama either!)

    I get weird looks taking photos around Rodez for my France blog too, because I’m often aiming my camera at non-touristy things. I just go right ahead…who cares?
