There is definitely not a lack of gelato shops here! Yesterday I went to a famous one near the Trevi fountain that has 150 flavors! Leonardo was thoroughly overwhelmed and we took a long time to figure out what we wanted!
This week we continued to learn about various aspects of the Roman Empire. We also finalized our topics for our midterm papers that are due in about a week. We all realized that we actually have to complete academic work while here! What madness….
This Saturday me and a small group of students from the program are going on a day trip to Naples to have the famous Napoli pizza and to visit the site of Pompeii. I’m excited to see yet another city in Italy. To finish my blog entry I’d like to tell you guys another cultural fact about Italy….you push the door to enter a place, and pull to get out! Exactly the opposite of America.
Arrivederci for now!
