Holi festival at SOAS

Indian Holi festival. Wohooo. I couldn't wait. I always wanted to attend one of the colour runs held all over the world but I never had the chance. Finally, at SOAS we had this end-of-term Holi festival. Small one, yes, but it was fun anyway. We were super lucky with the weather so we actually didn't mind the water guns! 
Take a look at the video:

Cambodia: Khmer Cooking Class

We love food more than anything. Simply for us life is about food and therefore there is no traveling without a lot of food. it is nice to learn some local recipes from locals but why not to try a cooking class? When in Siem Reap we decided to try Tigre de Papier. Itis right on Pub Street and for a decent price you get to try preparing three courses you choose from the menu and of course, you eat them at the end. To be hones I wouldn't go to a cooking class where i cannot eat what I've cooked, haha.

Coffee tour de Manchester

Our coffee list was way longer but we did want to spend the whole weekend in cafes as there is a lot to see in the lovely city of Manchester. Here is the list of the top 3 cafes to try when in Manchester:

Náš seznam kaváren v Manchesteru byl o něco delší, ale nehodlali jsme celý víkend prosedět v kavárnách, v Manchesteru je toho dost k vidění. Tak tedy stručně, zde jsou ty tři nejlepší kavárny: 


Our first time in Manchester! Our first plan was to see the Black Keys gig. Another first time for us and I couldn't wait to see them live. But it seems it is not my destiny to see them as they cancelled the whole month in Europe, due to an injury. Never mind, we already had the tickets to Manchester so we went anyway. 
To my surprise, the city centre is very small. But full of lovely little streets and beautiful houses. The architecture is really something. I really took picture of every second house. Important thing? I really loved this place, such an atmosphere with the northern kinda accent, but one or two days to is enough to see all important sightseeing points, see some of the museums and cafes.
