Bergamo, Italy

Since the beginning of this year, it felt like school was going 100mph without any breaks. Along the way, I caught the flu leaving me with 103 degrees fever and staying in bed for days. I’m happy to say that I’m glad that’s over now. In celebrating the end of chaos, my classmates and I went yesterday for the day in Bergamo. We got lucky with the weather as it was warm and absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for a better day than what we had yesterday.

Yes it was pretty hilly and a good walk but, the view was well worth it. bergamo.jpgbergamo20.jpgbergamo9.jpgbergamo4

I thought it was too sweet but, it was good to try. It’s basically a cake with lots of sugar on the outside and then a bit of chocolate mousse inside. bergamo12.jpgbergamo7We stumbled upon L’Apetitoso restaurant in the city center because of their interesting interior. Then, we checked out their menu and next thing we knew we were having burgers, brisket and polenta. I’m glad this was one of those places we accidentally found because the meals were delicious.bergamo28.jpgbergamo8bergamo25.jpgYou must see the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. The interior is grand!bergamo21.jpgbergamo24.jpgbergamo26.jpgWe ended the day having an aperitivo.
