Summary of Weekend Activities
  • Took exam. French, if you are wondering. About 4 people copied everything I wrote, which was far from brilliant. I usually don't like people copying what others write, but given what our French classes looked like (a complete waste of time that is), I actually felt good knowing they would all pass.
  • Went to Carturesti. A bookstore and a tea house combined. I had a Japanese tea, sencha, cherry blossom. With a little honey. Simply delicious. It is the perfect place to shop for books, then read through them or simply read one you brought while having great tea and listening to beautiful music (it was jazz mostly when I went there with Silviana).
  • As none of my friends felt like going to a club, although we had been planning this for some time, we decided to go to the movies. We chose a really light one: the specifics were no need to think too much, funny, not complicated. So we saw Code Name: The Cleaner. Not even close to the best comedies I've seen, but the only one available on Saturday night. And it was quite fun to watch in the end.
  • As we were hungry, Silviana and I also had dinner before the movie. At a Lebanese place called Coltul Verde (Green Corner), conveniently placed on the same floor as the movie theater. Great food! Chicken with oranges and rice.
  • I eventually got to work on a translation on Sunday. Which was great, since it was kinda due this weekend. The not so great part is that I have not finished it yet.
  • Sunday night came and we went to Carmen. My first "live" opera, as the ones I've see were aired by the national TV channel years ago. It was a perfect way to end the weekend. A relaxing yet overwhelming experience. I have to do that again.

    Sounds like you've had quite a weekend. Weren't they (weekends) meant for relaxation? :)
    By the way, I have to agree with you on Carturesti. A place for both the mind and the soul, where I always return with great pleasure. Too bad the one we have here is indoors.
