#3countriesnoproblem

our dinner date took us to niko's bistro, a cozy italian restaurant in one of my favourite neighbourhoods, kensington. we also had too much wine (okay maybe just the girls did) and calamari for dessert because, well because it's me.  and i love calamari.  and because the calamari is their signature dish and because it's simply delicious.

last nights feast = this mornings 6:30am run/wakeup call
