INTERNATIONAL FOOD FESTIVAL

I arrived to Bergamo the first week of October just in time to go to the annual international food festival. Hundreds of stands with magnificent food steaming in the cold Autumn days.
How lucky I was.
People are always so happy around food.


I had dozens of samples.


But I spent most of my money on cheese. Mmmm...so many creamy, pungent and delicious cheese.



I also had toasted chestnuts for the very first time in my life. I loved them.


One of my favorites was a spice stand with seasoning freom all over the world.

Paz, SarahKate, Dennis it was really a fun experience. I think I'm a little obsess with cheese... and there was such a variety.
