Photo of the Week: Sweet Treats


This past week has been insanely hot again. Consistently 35+ degree weather, but for some reason, this time around, it doesn’t seem so bad. Maybe I’m just getting use to the heat or have figured out a better way of managing it. My headaches aren’t as bad too which is awesome.

Ice cream is readily available around the city. There are gelato stands littered around the city. You can get a scoop of ice cream for less than a dollar Canadian. Granted the scoop is tiny, but its the perfect amount for after lunch or dinner. I’ve started to really like the ice cream sandwiches that you can get in the grocery stores (which you can buy individually, not just in boxes). Instead of the cookie that you get back home, the ice cream comes between two thin wafers. The first time I had it, I thought it was the strangest thing, but since then this particular summer treat has grown on me. The two wafers hold the whole sandwich together much better than any of the cookies back home did.

Also! Tomorrow marks my 3 months of my arrival in Budapest!
