It’s starting to feel like chilly fall in Florence today! It was our first real rainy, cold day in the city. It was fun walking on the street and seeing umbrella after umbrella. I’ve always appreciated rain, but it’s harder to when it’s cold; I’m dressed in my fleece and leggings and am still freezing! I’m feeling a lot better after several bowls of soup and glasses of Ace Juice.
Sasha and I went to Ditta Artigianale (one of our favorite cafés), and a woman from North Carolina sat with us at our table since it was full. She informed us on the latest Donald Trump BS and encouraged us to vote. Turns out she was the president of Salem College for several years! It was fun how she just sat and talked to us. We told her about studying here for a year.
It’s fun having the apartment to myself! I feel like a real adult. It’s a little lonely, but luckily, there’s plenty of people to hang out with. Looking forward to a night in with a movie on this gray night. xo ~e.
