the best gelato i ever ate.

i don't know if has more to do with my current state of illness-and-stress-induced irritability or with the two-hour conversation i had with my roommate, reminiscing my european adventures, 
but i could reaaally go for a little bit of this stuff right now.
that's right, a few big scoops of this mint chocolate chip and stracciatella gelato.
seriously, the best i ever tasted. 
and it wasn't even italian!
back when i was in spain, we spent a weekend in the incredibly picturesque town of san sebastian, up near the french border.
we all went out for tapas and dinner as a group, and then our program directors treated us to one of the best desserts of the whole trip... gelato!
for a while, we were all hooked on the spanish helado, but after trying this, we could never turn our backs to gelato.
this stuff was so smooth and creamy, and it was delivered by the most hilarious little ice cream man. 
seriously, this is how happy it made us:
