For a little over a week, I have been in Europe. Last week, I was in Italy, and this week I'm teaching a class at the New Bulgarian University in Sofia, Bulgaria. I have been to both countries before, and my past experience was that the food in Italy is spectacular, while the food in Bulgaria is not.Last week in Pescara eating a particularly delicious ravioli, it might make sense to say, "Wow, the food in Italy is fantastic." But, if I had eaten a disappointing slice of pizza (which never happened), I might have said, "This slice of pizza is disappointing." On the other hand, last night's dinner in Bulgaria was passable, leading me to conclude that the food in Bulgaria is disappointing. Lunch today was quite good, though, and so I might be tempted to comment that this particular meal was enjoyable.
