So, it’s finally hitting me that I’m actually living in downtown Rome! I feel so blessed to have this opportunity.
Last night a group of us went out to a few bars in Campo Dei Fiori and happily realized that the time change allows us to stay up later without really being too tired. The unfortunate side of that is that we’re waking up in the afternoon here. Classes start tomorrow so we’ll have to get over that pretty quickly.
Once Danielle and I got ready for the day we headed out for breakfast/lunch at a bar a couple blocks away from our building followed by some shopping. It’s Italy’s sale season here so everything is up to 50% off. I didn’t end up getting anything but Danielle got a cute denim jacket for 20€.
At 2:30 this afternoon we met up with some of the students in our program and went on a guided walking tour through Rome. Since Chris, Danielle, and I had already done plenty exploring on our own and had seen most of the points of interest that the tour covered, we stuck with our guide until we made it to the Trevi Fountain (where we threw coins in of course) and then broke off from the group to get some gelato.
We came back from our adventure and napped for a while before heading out to a late dinner. Today was an exciting day, but luckily far less exhausting than the previous two!
Question: What is your favorite ethnic cuisine? Mine is Italian, so I’m in heaven!
