I am writing this letter from the Termini Train Station as I wait for my train that will take me to Florence, my final destination. It is hard to believe another month has gone by and that I only have one more left. This experience has definitely made me grow as a person. I am so lucky to have made so many new friends, both Italians and Americans, that have widened my perspective of other cultures and ways of living. As the weather is getting nicer, I am finding myself falling into the laid-back Italian tendencies. It is really a nice break from the hustle and bustle of New York City that I am accustomed to. I truly appreciate everything SAI does to make my time here so enjoyable.
