For my 21st birthday, I wanted nothing more than to enjoy cupcakes. It’s been over a month since I’ve so much as SEEN a cupcake. Italy is not exactly the place to go for that type of dessert. That’s ok, because I love me some cannoli, too.
But it’s my birthday, and I’ll do what I want. I found a bakery called Sweety Rome that sells real cupcakes! I planned on going there with a bunch of friends the day after my birthday (since I was on a field trip for my actual birthday). Unfortunately, I got sick that weekend and felt terrible just in time for cupcakes. Not only was I sick, but the public transportation of Rome went on STRIKE! Sweety was a good 3-4 subway stops from school. Last minute, Kyle and I decided to go for it. It was a treacherous walk, but so worth it! It was so refreshing to see all my old favorites lined up in front of me – on Via Milano, of all places on earth! Red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, and best of all – TIRAMISU! I was in heaven and forgot all about being sick for a moment.
“Posso fare delle foto?” “CERTO!” That’s what I like to hear.
Then I remembered I was sick. And it was a grueling walk back. All apologies to my friends who wanted to come, I was a sniffly drag to hang out with anyway!
