Ignoring the fact that I was in the middle of the spring semester, I grasped an opportunity to visit my friend in Rome. I was delighted to spend a week in the eternal city. On the one hand Rome is so mainstream/ cliché but on the other hand… really, who cares…
Early spring in the eternal city. Overcast, silver sky and deep emerald green pines.

Tiramisu alla crema di pistaccio
For a week I was on a gelato -tiramisu - cornetto diet. I still dream of those delicious and impossibly sweet white chocolate cornetto a from a bakery in Amelia's neighbourhood. We were sneaking through the back door in the evening when they were warm for the next day. I fell for granita con panna from famous Tazza D’Oro Café and Lindt pralineas with champagne flavoured filling from a candy shop near Pantheon.
I laid back and with a wonderfully positive attitude, beaming with joy and almost supernatural energy coming from who-knows-what ( sugar, caffeine and art experience?) I threw myself into the daily grind.
*The experience lasted less than48h.
