... t call chicken breast served with a small amount of iceberg lettuce, a salad. Oh and I also tried my first straight espresso. Can't say I'm a fan now, but it was worth a try.... I have had worst shots before :) We had a masquerades party which was a lot of fun, as everyone had purchased some sort of mask in Venice.
