So sorry I didn't post yesterday wifi totally sucks. And I am now mixing up my days and can't remember what today is haha. On Sunday the group went to St.Angelo i think, it is a castle/fotress building that was used earlier before for a fortress that the pope would run to when the Vatican was being attacked. There was also a treasurey room, urn room, a working restaurant, and cells for prisoners. It was absolutely huge and beautiful, you can see all of the pictures on facebook. Then we got pizza at a little pizzeria off the main road, it was absolutely delicious! But the food is huge!! I split the pizza and got two pieces which I had to fold in half. Then we went to the spanish steps, trevi fountain, parliament, and Novea square. All pictures on facebook. I had a calzone for dinner at a restuarant right by our hotel. The plate was huge like 3 times the side of my head and the calzone was half of it. I did not finish it, which I guess is rude but I don't know how people can eat this much. I also got burned.
Today we had our first class, which was mostly orientation and preparing us for the next 5 weeks. A few of us found a grocery store to get bread and cereal and milk so we don't have to buy every single meal. It's starting to get expensive. We took a neighborhood tour, which was aboslutely incredible and beautiful. I will post pictures tomorrow. Found out that most of the squares and larger decorated buildings were actually owned by families centuries ago to show off their wealth while the rest of the area was extremely poor. For our welcome dinner we had a specialitalian dinner, which includes an appetizer that was an eggplant pattie, tomato paste on bread, and a cod nugget looking thing; small plate of pasta; chicken in tomoato pepper broth, potatoes; tiramisu for desert. It was all delicious but I am now about to go into food coma so your all lucky I'm writing this.
I miss you all but I have fallen in love!
