Mediterranean diet

This hasn’t suddenly changed to a food blog, it remains about my travels and I am still at the Eden Project in Cornwall.  The second biome mimics a Mediterranean climate rather than the rainforest.  On entering, you see a mosaic on the floor representing olive oil flowing down the hill and an obelisk where it collects into a bottle.

Overhead are wonderful bougainvillea flowers and other pink blossoms alongside the path.


The art here continues with these fighters dotted around the chilli plants.

There was a chilli tasting station at the edge of the planting and I discovered Lemon Drop Chilli – which has a great combination of lemon flavour and chilli heat.  I managed to find some seeds in one of the shops at the Eden Project and hope to plant some next spring.

For daily pictures from this blog you can follow me on tumblr. at and on Twitter @tash_higman.   You can follow the current journey ‘live’ by liking the Travel-Tales page on Facebook at where I also post additional small titbits that don’t fit into the blog posts.
