First of all, I have decided to write in english only. Doing the translation thing was just to much;) and this way everybody can understand. This weekend we have had a proper French weekend! The weather has been so good and I almost feel like I have been on vacation for a few days! On friday night Kris and I went to Café de Bastille for dinner!;) The place is French and hidden away in a back alley together with a few other really kozy restaurants. You can sit outside! (Which in SF is almost impossible) or enjoy the inside like we did;)They had lots of delicious real french food and even Cassolet which is the traditional dish of Toulouse, France where I used to live! We had a lovely dinner with good food and great wine! Afterwards we went to Local edition, a kind of new bar in the city. It used to be the old print area for the SF cronichle and it still smells like fresh newspapers in there! The place was really cool and had a real 1920’s era to it.
On saturday we went back to our old neighborhood to pick up Kris’s shirts from the tailor. Kind of nice to see the old neighborhood, but at the same time I am really glad we moved! The new area is so much better;) Later that day I decided to pamper myself so I went to the hairdresser, got a manicure and did some secondhand shopping! I got this really good deal on living social a few weeks ago and no better time than now to use it! I went to John Brody Salon in the Castro, which is really good! I have been there once before and they are always so nice and understand how i want my hair. My hairdresser Anneleice had just come back from a roundtrip around Europe and the first thing she asked me was: Are you scandinavian Hege? Hahaha!;) I had a good time talking to her and got a deep conditioning treatment and a nice haircut at the same time;)
After my workout on Sunday Kris and I continued our french weekend with a lovely lounch at Café de la Presse. The sun was shining, the food was amazing and again I truly felt like I was on vacation in my own city!
The next few weeks is going to be crazy with finals, presentations and projects so I might not be as active, but i´ll try to give you small updates:)
And to all the Norwegians: only 11 days and I am back in Bergen for a few weeks!
