So tomorrow I have an important exam – and what would be more adequate now than baking a fresh plum galette? … Studying? Revising? Meh! I believe making sure to have a fulfilling breakfast for the next day, that will allow me to start the day in the best way possible (with freshly baked goods obviously) and therefore focus perfectly on the exam, has to be my absolute priority now 😉
In my defense, plums are finally in season in Italy and they just looked so juicy and sweet. I mean, they basically asked for it! I promise it was a very quick bake and afterwards I returned to my desk and went over all the important con concepts of Web Marketing one last time.
Edit 6.5.: We got the marks, and let me just tell you: I did well. The cake definitely helped 😀
After two days of the-world-is-about-to-end-rain the sun finally came back out today. I decided to celebrate this occasion by spending the afternoon exploring the park at Villa Borghese.
I made way there past myriads of tourists and up the Spanish Steps – when you go up there are actually no people at all! All the lazy tourists stay at the bottom 😉
The park is huuge! Although I had quite a long walk, I only managed to see a little bit. I watched the little boats on the pond and then placed myself strategically on a park bench in order to soak up some sunshine whilst reading.
And when it finally started to get cold, I found a lovely little café and had some tea and dolci for merenda – quite an English-Italian clash, I admit. Old habits die hard! ^^
