Hi dear friends!
Itīs nice to read how you spent your Christmas holiday. Anita, Iīm pretty well. Thanks for your kind concern :-)
I also had a wonderful time with my family. On Christmas Eve I stayed at home with my mum and sisters. Weīre not used to have a large meal during the evening, because itīs summer time in Brazil and in this period of the year the air is quite stuffy and thunder storms are frequent around here. So our supper had salads and fruits, but I couldnīt resist so I baked a sponge cake for dessert. Hmm... I really love cakes :-). We talked and watched some films too. Anyway, on the Christmas day we went to my grannyīs house to have lunch with her and all my aunts and cousins. Itīs the only time of the year that we are able to get together and catch up with each other.
The city is very calm due to the fact that many people are going to the beach to spend the New Yearīs Eve there. Itīs a perfect time to enjoy the city because the places arenīt so crowed and you donīt have to haste to do things.
Yesterday I went to the cinema. The train and subways were so empty. There was silence on the stations, which is a quite rare thing when we talk about public transportation here :-).
Friends, many thanks again for your comments. Itīs always wonderful to read them :-).
Hi Fillipo! The tortillini sounds delicious. Iīve googled some images of this dish and thereīs this kind of pasta here. Iīm going to have a goal soon :-). By the way, have you seen Gomorrah by Matteo Garrone? Iīve watched this film yesterday and I found really interesting. Iīm looking for the book now.
Cris, your Christmas table was really beautiful.
