Jewelry Making 7-One Year Course 2017

During the Holiday break, I went to Perugia for their annual Chocolate Festival. It is located at the top of a hill, in between Rome and Florence. After a train ride from Florence, we took another train up to the top of Perugia.

We bought the Choco Card where we would go around the different stalls to collect a free gift, mostly chocolates! It is the first time I’ve seen and ate so much chocolates in a day.

There were many chocolates of different colours and shapes. This stall in particular sold only chocolates and sweets with liquor! We tried some and bought some back.

With blocks of chocolates everywhere, it is so difficult to choose what to buy. With various percentage of cacao, there is white chocolate, milk and dark. With hazelnuts, pistacchios and other interesting flavours.

I also took the time to organise my documentations in preparations for my portfolio. While sorting the images, I also got to recap my lessons and the steps for each piece.

There was a Belle Epoque French fair going on at next to the Spedale degli Innocenti. It was a fair that sold French food, products, wine and it was very exciting!

I had my favourite macaroons! I was so excited to try each and every flavour and it was so colourful. My favourite flavour is pistacchio and champagne, which is uncommon to find elsewhere.

We also have a new roomate, Grace, who comes from Taiwan. We had dinner together in the city center and introduced her around town.

Towards the end of my holiday, I went to Fiesole, which is 20minutes bus ride away from Florence. Located on the top of a hill, this small town is known to exist even before Rome was built!

We went to the musuem and excavation site to take a lot of photos. Then headed to see the sunset. The view was absolutely breathtaking and we could see the Duomo from the top of Fiesole. This concludes my one week break!
