Tuesday Night in Jena

Today was another busy day in the classroom, so I was ready for a bit of relaxation this evening. After walking home in the dark again and finishing some work in my hotel room I headed into the city center for some shopping and then a bite to eat.

Since Saturday I have been looking forward to another visit to TeeGschwendner. I have been studying their Teebuch to see what other teas I wanted to take home with me. Tonight I bought three more bags of tea and also got a sample of another tea I wanted to try. Once I get home I will write more about the teas and also the new tea pot that I bought on Saturday.

I really enjoyed my visit to the shop tonight and the wonderful help that I received in choosing my teas.

After visiting TeeGschwendner I headed to the Wagnergasse to meet up with some of my students for dinner.

We met up at Versilia which is just past one of my favorite place to eat Restauration Stilbruch.

One of my students is from Italy and he highly recommended this Italian restaurant. He promised authentic pizza so I decided to join some of my students there after I finished shopping.

Here is the Prosciutto pizza that I had for dinner. It was definitely a great Italian pizza.

We had a good time together as we enjoyed our pizzas and talked about our different countries. We talked a lot about food 🙂 The students that were there live in Israel, Lebanon, France and Italy so we had a lot to talk about.

Italian Dessert, Ice Cream Spaghetti

I decided to have dessert and wanted to just have some simple ice cream, but they only had this interesting dish called Spaghetti ice cream.  The centerpiece was ice cream formed in the shape of spaghetti. I was not impressed as it seemed a lot more like an ice cream novelty than an actual dessert you would get in a nice restaurant.

Definitely go for the pizza, but skip the Spaghetti ice cream. Two of my students liked the tiramisu that they had, but the student from Italy said that his wife’s is much better 🙂

Now for one more day in the classroom and the long journey home.
