As my Californian summer comes to a close, I am packing and getting ready to embark for my birthday excursion in London, England. Strangely enough I spent my birthday in London last year as well. I will be the ripe age of 23… better start looking into Medicare. Ah, the life of a jet setter!
Luckily, though my birthday happens to be on a Monday, it also happens to fall on a Bank Holiday, as well as the Notting Hill Carnival. I’m not quite sure what to expect for the carnival but my boyfriend informed me that it’s bound to be a good time. I remember I wanted to go last year when I was in London with my mother, but the news reports of deaths and riots kind of deterred her desires… hmm this should be interesting!
I am anxiously anticipating my return to the motherland (Italia) on September 1st where I will start my internship at Ferrarini and eat all the cured meats and Parmigiano Reggiano that my heart desires. How I miss the readily available delicacies of the land I call home.
As soon as my crazy summer ends, I will get back into the swing of things and revamp this website. Until then, Cheerio! I am off to London!
