Nonostante fossi tornato tardi dalla festa la scorsa notte, ero fresco come una rosa stamattina.

English Translation

Although I came back late from the party last night, I was as fresh as a daisy in the morning.

Just in case that anyone else is surprised by “fossi” (like me, once again).:

“Nonostante” needs the congiuntivo no matter what.
