What Van Rijn Eats During Business Meetings

Continuing the food theme -

"He took a large bite from a limburger-and-onion sandwich and looked enquiringly at the rest."
-The Van Rijn Method, p. 148.

"One girl played on a shiverharp, one fanned him with peacock feathers, and one sat on an arm of the seat, giggling and dropping chilled grapes into his mouth."
- ibid., pp. 169-170.

"...taking up a tiny sandwich of smoked eel upon cold scrambled egg."
-Rise Of The Terran Empire, p. 67.

"Van Rijn swallowed a confection of Limburger cheese and onion on pumpernickel..."
- ibid., p. 70. 

This is by no means a complete list. However, since I am pressed for time, and also am about to eat, I trust that it will satisfy us for the time being.

Kaor, Paul!

I had to laugh a little how boisterously Old Nick enjoyed his meals and frolicked with his mistresses in the text quoted from pages 169-70 of THE VAN RIJN METHOD.

But I'm not at all sure I would like a sandwich made from Limburger cheese and onion! (Smiles)
