(sorry for getting behind on my blog, we have been without internet for a few days and i have been wicked busy) today was the 2nd day of classes-very exciting! i had my first day of italian class! it was sooo much fun! the professor is absolutely adorable!! he is a tiny, 35 yr old, pierced eared italian guy who is hilarious! he loves to draw pictures of things on the board to help us figure out what he is saying and he has like the whole rainbow in chalk so he takes his time, its fun n cute!the class is really small, only like 12 of us which is nice so we get individual attention. on the way back from class i took photos of my journey home, which you can find in my photo albums i've posted. i wasn't planning on going inside the duomo but something pulled me inside and it was absolutely amazing! words can't describe it, my pictures dont do it justice. one of the girls has a sweeeeet camera that takes amazing professional photos so i will have to share them with you all soon. and we all plan on taking the 473 steps to the top of the duomo--can't wait to do that! every day i have to walk by the duomo to get to classes and its incredible. each time i come around the corner i have to pause for a minute and just stare for a bit. sitting in our living room and dinning room we can see the top of the duomo and its sooo cool!
