This month flew by so quickly! I am settled in now and still do not feel very homesick. I also haven’t really experienced that bad of culture shock, but maybe I am just lucky. I am taking three studio art classes, two photo and one drawing, so that is probably the most challenging thing thus far. I am taking intermediate Italian and got my first 100%. I am beginning to understand Italians when they’re speaking now, which is VERY exciting!
The best time of last month was visiting Verona, Lake Garda, and Mantova. Verona is beautiful in so many way. It is a very romantic city, especially Juliet’s house! Lake Garda is also one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. It was peaceful and quaint. Mantova had a lot of history and beautiful architecture. All in all I do not want to leave this beautiful country.
