Despite good intentions I haven’t been able to participate in all the Friday theme’s this month, despite all the inspirational subjects chosen by Simone “Fritt ur hjartat“ in Uddevalla.
However, today’s theme “coffee” is perfect since I had a quiet fika this week in Pulp (coffee and lunch chain in Brussels) and pondered over my tiny but cheap caffe latte about Brussels… (photo above is from last summer though)
I think that is what coffee is the symbol for me: some time ‘off’ whatever you are doing to either be social with family, friends or colleagues, or to have a quiet time of reflection on your own.
I don’t know why I was so surprised by the size of the caffe latte, it was the same size last summer! But I guess from having all those coffees in Starbucks while studying Spanish over the last months in Puerto Rico made me forget how tiny a ‘normal’ coffee with milk is in Brussels / Europe! But really – who needs half a litre of caffe latte? I never finish my Starbucks coffee… and I definitely preferred the 2 EUR-price tag at Pulp!
Oh, and actually it is not called a caffe latte in Brussels – the traditional name is “lait russe” or Russian milk, nobody seems to know why though!?
Have a short coffee break is usually the best way to enjoy the atmosphere while travelling, giving the feet a rest while checking out the guidebook…
Just a short post today since we are heading to Spain this afternoon and I still have to meet up with a few last friends.
This post was supposed to have been published Friday morning, but apparently I didn’t click on the right button 😦
