I ate a lot of fruit and salads for breakfast and lunch,as snack i really like "Kettle" and "Lays Natural" chips,"Larabar" snacks and "Glutino" cookies and as dinner I ate a lot of good meat!!!! Now I know the names of all types of meat of every restaurants!!!!I can't wait to return to your country to see all the wonderful places that I have not seen!
