So, one of the teachers that I am working with strongly recommends Bologna & Perugia, both cities which are within four hours of where I am staying. I feel another weekend trip coming on. Perugia is a college town, so maybe I will find some Americans or some people closer to my age there. And Bologna? I’m sure it’s famous for something. Something that I will have to research. I remember reading somewhere that each region of Italy has its own wine. Not sure what is what, but I’ll figure out which weekend I will go where. I’m so excited.
You know, in one of my classes today, one of the students asked, “How do you ask for information in Macerata?” That’s a very good question. The truth is, I manage. I figure it out. I know a little bit of Italian, and I know some Spanish, so, I make do. It’s easier for me to understand what is being said to me than it is to try and respond to what is being said.
