Hello dear ones!
It has been a while since I have updated you on my life here, I’m sorry! My last couples of days in Perugia were really good. Spent an evening at Caroline’s with Beatriz making Swedish apple pie, which turned out the most amazing pie ever! I’m still so proud of our pie, it was the easiest and yummiest ever. We spent a lot of ‘pomeriggio’s in the local café’s eating amazing chocolate cakes and too many cappuccino’s. And at some point it starting snowing in Perugia, to see the amazement and happiness on some faces was awesome. After my last Italian class (which was freezing) I went to the fountain to meet up with my mum and her friend Joke (or in short version MJ), but it was snowing and they were lost, so in the end it took a bit longer than expected. They fed me completely fat this weekend, since they didn’t quite agree on my cracker diet. That Friday we went out to a great trattoria and after packing I left Perugia on Saturday morning. We went on our little roadtrip and made a stop in a very cute city while the sun was out. We arrived in Bologna, but apparently finding a parking spot here is harder than in Amsterdam.
I’m sharing an apartment with another Dutch girl, Eveline. The first night there were two Spanish boys as well, apparently they quite like the white stuff, but I didn’t really notice. On Sunday we went to the Marandi museum, walked around town and did some sightseeing. There is this wonderful bookstore / restaurant / café and it is awesome. M bought me an Italian Sherlock Holmes book to learn some extra words. MJ left on Monday morning which was quite sad, because it was so much fun.
I started classes yesterday; my class consists of two Japanese people, a girl that seems a bit autistic and a guy, a boy from Sweden, a woman for Scotland and the most adorable 38 year old Indonesian guy who is studying Italian to become a priest in Rome. For the newcomers they organize a short city tour every week with an apperitivo after to meet some of the other students in the school. They all spoke Italian, constantly, but I just kept replying in English most of the time, because my Italian is not super awesome that I am able to talk about the crashing economy.. My night rest hasn’t been the best here so I got up way too late this morning, and even though I woke up at five, six and seven my biological and material alarm clock failed to when I was supposed to go to school. ..Tonight I have been invited to go out for dinner and drinks with some people my age, so I’m quite excited.
Oh by the mummy: I WAS RIGHT! The guy never told you that you had wonderful eyes, he said it was a wonderful day…. I’m sorry.
