Happy birthday me…

Okay this may sound quite sad but I’ll post it anyway…

Had a nice birthday lunch (insalata rucola, lasagne al forno and espresso) in Sagrantino (Berlin), one of the best Italian food I’ve had in Germany so far.

Dinner was in Sila Thai, a very upscale Thai restaurant in the middle of Dusseldorf…

So, happy birthday me – a solitary birthday.
