It was a very ‘Slow’ weekend, fist we had the bush walk on Saturday, and then an 
Indian event on Sunday! The cooking class was taken by Sheena, and we all learned 
a lot. The main dish was a chicken curry, but she also kept some spices aside and made 
the same curry vegetarian for the five veggies who were present. Then Sheena showed 
us how to make a cauliflower and carrot baji, a daal, chapati,  basmati with cumin seeds, 
and a good chai.
