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.
A day in my life. Nothing planned, everything improvised as the day went.
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.
If you like to watch Youtube videos you probably have seen March favourites everywhere, but here’s my own version. One item per category.
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.

So today we talk about coffee. Better, we talk about caffè.

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.
