Kazan + Prayer = Food
During my visit to Kazan, there were two places where I ate well. They fed us well at the Mosque at a welcome banquet in our honour. The people were very kind and the food was delicious. Some people prayed in the mosque and afterwards, a man interviewed me for Tatar Radio. He was wearing a button with a number on it. I asked him what it stood for. I felt like a big stupid when he told me that it was the anniversary of "The Revolution". He was still very nice to me.
A visit to the Mullah's house was tremendous as well. People played Accordion and Violin, Great food and lots of singing. and the walls were painted. We danced in the street outside. It was incredible. I don't remember eating Peremech at either event, though.
