gelato, mexico, and a market.
Yesterday on my way home I stopped for some gelato. This is just a shot of a street kinda by my house... I thought I'd show you what most of Italy looks like, outside the centro . That pizzeria is always packed full of teenagers, and across the street is my favorite gelateria (also always packed with teenagers)
Yes folks, this is MEXICAN FOOD!!!!! I can't tell you how proud of myself I was for this lil treat. I'm sure it was disgusting, but to me it tasted soooo good. I simply stuck some water, flour and salt in a bowl and rolled out two tortillas which i later fried, and I stuck some beans in a pot, then when all was hot I laid some fresh mozzerella on top, and i'm pretty sure I consumed it within seconds! Giuliana came down to show me how I need to water her plants, and she gave my plate a look that I shant soon forget.
Sorry this is a weird picture... I wasn't really looking when I took it! This is my breakfast at Caffe Stella this morning. I decided I can eat out for breakfast once a week, and I usually do it in this lil gem of a joint right up the street from a market. What you can't see in the pic is the amazing sight across the street! But it's just a bunch of old buildings, nothin you haven't seen before :)
This morning was the market, and I forgot how much it changes in the summer! Today there was a whole new slug of vendors that haven't been there before. This is a shot of one of the fruit carts - I tried for 20 minutes to get something, and all the old ladies kept beating me. It was great :)
Have I mentioned that I don't want to leave? Because whenever I think about going back to Utah, I get this feeling like someone just poured tar into my body.
