I managed to sprain my foot getting off the city carousel, and the nice dinner (after grazing the green room for 3 days) turned out to be based on an onion reduction sauce. It was a beef mole, and they advertised it as 22 spices, a holiday type preparation, which I am very sure was grandmama’s recipe, beginning with, “take one bushel of onions and boil until they constitute one cup of sauce.’ Suffice it to say that I’ve taken every med I have and I’m still feeling the effcts of it. Also I have nearly lost my voice. I did a reading that contained a lot of Ilisidi dialogue, and I can say my voice was appropriate, at least. But I’d expected it to clear up fairly fast after leaving the hotel. Not so much.
