Mardi Gras

Yesterday, I tried Frozen Yoghurt for the first time in the US. It is really popular and was surely worth a try. You could choose as many flavors as you wanted, for example New York cheesecake and Chocolate Twilight. Then you chose some toppings, like fresh fruit, cookie dough and pieces of walnuts.¬†Finally you added some kind of sauce, in my case it was chocolate sauce, of course. It was delicious! I really loved that it was self-served, so you were totally in control of the amounts of everything ūüôā Awesome!

Today we went exploring Ocean Beach by spending some time there meditating and throwing Frisbee. We continued on to Sunset Cliffs where we sat and watched the crashing waves. We were even sprayed by the ocean water once. My dress was soaking wet, but I still had a smile on my face.

A had some lunch the Italian cafe near the hostel and got the waiting number one. Oh yeah. I ordered a delicious scrambled eggs, salmon and mozzarella plate. Good food Рhappy soul.
This Tuesday was Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday. It was celebrated in the streets of San Diego with parades and performances. Unfortunately it cost 30 dollars to see the festivities so me and some people from the hostel chose to celebrate in a different way. Tuesday is also Taco Tuesday so we wandered down the streets of Little Italy and found a Mexican restaurant called Hola. I had the smallest taco ever. We had plenty of nachos with dip too so I did not leave hungry. Margaritas was a given on the menu during happy hour so of course we all had some. Then it was time for karaoke. I decided to attempt to honor Queen and sang Somebody to Love. I acquired some beads for the performance, so when we later moved on to a club downtown, I fit right in with the crowd wearing bead covered necklaces. It was a perfect Mardi Gras!
