One day I decided I wanted to go for a walk and I realised that a lot of places I wanted to visit were actually all very close, so I created an itinerary. Here there are some of the photos I took.

Lima: First Week

My first week in Lima was, as you’ll be able to see, full of food (and this is just a small part of it), but also of course of family and friends, and even some cute place. I was thinking to write these posts every Saturday, just to let you know what I’m up to.

Today I found out not having a short-term objective could be weirder than I expected.
I woke up this morning – well, midday – with any plan at all. I didn’t have to study, or go to university, and I don’t have a job for the moment.

Everyone has a I-want-to-eat-that-but-I-don’t-want-to-make-a-great-effort recipe. This is mine.
The first time I tasted a bite of Fondant au Chocolat I thought: this is heaven on a cake. A soft, moist, chocolate cake you just can’t get enough. My French roommate Alice baked it for a party at our place in Tallinn and she showed me how fast it was. Easy and delicious. French really know their stuff about cooking.
