'The Freedom Of Choice'
I remember, years ago when the ghost of socialism was still walking the Earth, one could choose only a few local traditional foods from a few existing street food vendors. They thought us that good citizen never looks up to others but loves his/her own food/country/etc. With the fall of socialism, we've gained a variety of choices. Lots of food from all over the world is sold on the streets today. The consumer society and globalization go hand in hand when it comes to satisfying people's tastes.
Let's see. Will it be something sweet? Local or foreign? Asian or Middle-Eastern? The abundance of choice and a whole spectrum of different foods is what makes a decision harder.
Let's have a wok. Didn't eat one in quite some time. I like Asian kitchen. They have a very different approach to cooking.
Or maybe a slice of a local speciality, soparnik? Uh, this is seriously overpriced.
I know I'll end with trdelnik, an Eastern European sweet baked on open fire.
Well, there we go. Nowadays, there is at least some degree to which we can exercise our freedom of choice. One still cannot really choose the government or actually influence any of the decisions they're making for us but one can surely make an educated choice of food. Isn't democracy a fairytale? :-)
Enjoy your day! :-)
