Lima is always wonderful, even when it’s grey (90% of the times then), but Summer gives this city a special touch. Walking down the malecón, eating ceviche and sipping chilcanos with friends, going to Barranco and admiring a sunset disappear on the ocean are activities I cannot miss when visiting La Ciudad de los Reyes.

While I’m writing this, burrito-wrapped in my grey Ikea blanket, I can see the snow falling down on the roofs of the city. It has been a great ride so far.
Here are some of the photos of my last three months in Winterland.

A Sunday some weeks (months) ago, when it was still sunny and nice, I decided to get up of bed and check the most visited museum in Switzerland: the Swiss Museum of Transport. This huge – 20,000 m² – museum has, among other things, a Planetarium, a cinema and a Swiss Chocolate Experience with Lindt, and it is incredibly fun and educational for people of all ages.

A reunion with my closest Erasmus friends became a long weekend escapade in Prague.
Spending four sunny days in a beautiful city with good food and cheap everything was definitely a good idea. Continue reading “Prague”
I’m writing from one of the few coffee shops open on a Sunday and, needless to say, it’s packed. It’s pouring outside and from my seat I can see people running with and without umbrellas to arrive quickly home. Others try to shelter here but there’s no space. I guess people inside – me included – aren’t going anywhere in a while.
Three days ago it was my one-month anniversary (monthiversary?) in Lucerne. In these weeks I saw the transition from hot summer days to rainy autumn evenings and from what people have told me the last ones are gonna stay with us for a very long time.
As the photography enthusiast I am, I tried to take pictures every day of my daily life. My first month back in the Old Continent wasn’t adventurous but was definitely amazing. Here’s a sample of what I did.

My last trip before leaving Peru was to Arequipa, the second biggest city in the country. One of the possible origins of the word is the sentence “Ari qhipay” (in Quechua: “Yes, stay”) and honestly I would have stayed much longer.
The city, surrounded by volcanos, is located at 2,328 metres above sea level, so definitely not Lima, but I didn’t have any problem with the altitude.
The typical Arequipan house is made in ashlar, a volcanic stone from the area, and the walls are usually painted in cobalt blue, white or ochre. I fell deeply in love with these colours and the small streets and corners of the city center. The food was delicious (of course).
Here are some of my photos.

I watch a lot of Netflix. Watching tv series in bed after a long day is what I do every night before sleeping. Having lunch with my friends and talking about what we had watched the night before was one of my favourite things about university.
I usually go from light comedy to really serious drama, depending on how I’m feeling that day. The only things I’m not a fan of are horror and thriller.
Recently I’ve watched on Netflix: Continue reading “Recently on Netflix #1”
