Being gluten-free prevents me from eating some of these things, even though I'd really like to try them. (And some of them I got to try pre-diagnosis.)

I realize it's a little too easy to post a meme, but I'm exhausted. Two friends are leaving Bujumbura this week and we've been having farewell parties and receptions since Thursday. We are bumming around trying to sleep this afternoon before the next round of parties tonight. (After just having come home from a champagne brunch.)

But I found special interest in you for living in Burundi, you beinga celiac, and also we have the same name!
