Been slacking a teeny bit, oopsy!!
Monday: Ahhhh it was hard knowing it was our last Monday! We had two classes, same as usual. It was nice seeing everyone again because I had a bit of a cold over the weekend and didn’t really leave the apartment. Also, I was busy doing homework. But yeah, class was nice because I got enough sleep the previous night and could really focus. Before class, me bruni and sophia went to the CUTEST bakery/cafe for coffee and pastries. I also got a really nice postcard there! Later that night, some people wanted to go out but we were kind of tired and said no. Then spur of the moment, we decided yes! And it was soooo fun! We walked around the piazzas and admired Rome at night. Then we stopped by the Trevi Fountain, one of my favorite places in Roma!! It was actually almost EMPTY which was like a miracle, cause the 2 times I’ve been there before it was so packed you could barely stand or see. It was perfect and lovely.
Tuesday: we had to watch TWO movies in class! It was long and difficult to pay attention, but our teacher Josh was so sweet and brought TONS of snacks. We had an endless supply of cookies crackers chips candy and popcorn to go around, which made it a lot better. The films were actually pretty interesting as well. We got home and showered and got ready, because that night some of us were attending the opera! A real, legit, amazing, authentic, italian opera. It was called Attila and it was about the captain of the huns. It was beyond epic. So first of all, it was held outside and not at a theater. It was held at the ancient Bath Ruins of Caracalla. So the background behind the stage, was the gorgeous crumbling arches of the baths. The opera itself was so exciting and such a unique experience. Their voices were like angels. I couldn’t believe the notes they hit. They sang every word instead of talking and singing like in musicals. Wow, it was so exciting! I was confused for some parts because I dont speak Italian, but I still could follow along. And there was beautiful dance scene! It was like contemporary ballet and the dancers wore these beautiful purple dresses that had folds of material like wings gathering at their arms. The costumes were like a part of the choreography. I loved the whole night. Me Sophia and Mallika dressed up SUPER fancy and went to this SUPER fancy restaurant. It was the best meal I had here I think. Delish pasta in spicy sauce with shrimp and zucchini.
Today: was class again! We’ve been doing a ton of school lately instead of excursions so we can finish all the necessary work before the semester ends. It was sad though, because it was our LAST day of class. No more breaks between class and going to the snack bar to get paninis. That makes me sooo sad. We got back and napped then made dinner with Kyle, like usual!! The boys kitchen is so much nicer than ours. Everyone is doing homework, but I already finished so I dont know what to do with myself! Guess I’ll just chill on my computer for a little bit :)
