Why doesn’t anyone check my page:( You all are gonna make me cry! I’m sorry I can’t put up pictures, but you can all see them when I return. It’s my last weekend in Florence, and I’m trying to make the most of it:) We are going to this little town of Fiesole tonight to have a picnic and watch the sunset. I think it should be a good relaxing time. We partied it up a bit too much this week. We even played “flip-cup” at some bar the other night where you could buy three liters of beer for 19 euros (cheap for Florence). This week coming up is going to be really crazy! I have 2 finals, a final cooking class, and an in-class composition (and I have to find time to pack at some point). Then Sunday morning it’s off to Spain! I can’t wait to hang on the beach drinking cerveza and eating burritos (do they have burritos in Spain? Or is that Mexican?)
Hello everyone. I don’t know if anyone is really checking out my website (you bastards:) but you all should, because I refuse to write anymore 3-page e-mails! Just an update on my week. This weekend I went to Lake Garda in northern Italy. It was so beautiful. I’ve never seen a lake that was so clear and turquoise colored. It looked like ocean water! It was so fun and relaxing, and it turned out to be a celebration weekend, so there were fireworks and a fashion show (with a really bad singer in a shiny black coat!) School is still pretty tough. Yes, I do actually study. Alot! We have all these required museum visits and extra classes, but they’re all over in less than 2 weeks. I already can tell I’m really going to miss Florence. It’s become like my home, and it’s going to be strange to leave, but I’m excited to come home and see eveyone also:) Guess that’s about it for now. I’m headed off to Palazzo Vecchio, a palace from which the Medici family ruled Florence in the 13th century. Gotta go learn.
Once again trying to get all this stuff going. Trent has informed me that he thinks we can get pictures up on the web, so I’m going to give it a shot ASAP. I want to make sure I’m doing it right before I get to involved or anything (so don’t get too excited). I’m loving my trip still, definetly having an amazing time. This weekend I just hung out with Abbie (who was visiting from Spain) and then Sunday I went to the beach. It was bellissima! It amazing when there are snow-capped mountains next to an ocean. Maybe it’s because I’m from Kansas, but I just think that is the coolest thing ever! Anyway, this weekend I’m heading off to Lake Garda in northern Italy. It’s a lake with hot springs and it’s in the mountains. I’m so excited. Only 3 more weeks in Florence, and I really don’t want to leave, but I know Abbie and I will have a blast traveling:) OK, everyone respond if you can read this, and hopefully I’ll hear from you soon.
