these past few days have been beautiful. today, it's raining and freezing. to top it off, i have school today from 8 am - 16:30 (4:30) . it's been a long, tiresome day and i pretty much can't concentrate anymore. this thursday is labor day for the italians so there is no school. us girls (about 5 of us) are going to go to a small town near siena. good news for the day: i got my luggage. halleleujah. i thought it would never come. i feel like a new woman with clean clothes. also, just had the best gelato ever! panna cotta with straciatella.
