The First Day of School

Today was the first day of school. Dante Alighieri is amazing and my Italian class is going to be a blast. It is going to be challenging but so worth it. Hopefully I’ll be able to study hard and start speaking well. The view from the school is amazing and I feel so blessed to be able to study in such a lovely area around so many good people. I feel like the luckiest girl in the whole world.

After class we went and got gelato (regardless of the freezing cold rain). White chocolate and mint was the flavor of choice for the day and it was so good. I now have an official gelato count going: 7. Every post I'll update it.

We ate dinner with my group tonight. The chef whom I will be studying under here in Siena prepared the meal and it was amazing. It made me ten times more excited to start working with him. We got the recipe booklet already - YUMMY!

Gelato count: 9
