Weekend Breakfast

What a perfect lazy Saturday. After a gread ladies night last night inclusive Mojitos along the Tevere, Pizza at 2am, Gelati at 3am and a crazy bus driver. So… let’s go on with a relaxing weekend. Waking up at 11am, drink a strong espresso, have Cantuccinis (which I made yesterday (> see the recipe  under the next pic)) and a yogurt with pineapple and grapes for breakfast and start to edit photos. It was so hot today that I thought of staying home, but I wanted to buy a new book… so I headed to Feltrinelli International and came out with four new books. Ice Coffee in a bar and then laying on a bench in Park Villa Glori and start to read (started with “Notes from a big country” by Bill Bryson – go for it – so much fun) and after two hours reading did I walk back home. So here I am… Hope you had a relaxing Saturday as well! Baci
