I am back in Florence and gearing up for the second part of the semester! It’s nice to have a day to relax and unwind from my exciting travels and travails. Ibiza and Venice were the perfect destinations for my fall break. It’ll probably be the most memorable fall break I’ll ever have!
Central Italy has unfortunately been hit by another earthquake with a magnitude of 6.6. My friends felt tremors this morning as their beds shook, but for some reason, I slept through it. It is scary knowing that earthquakes occur here and can do devastating damage; however, Florence does not seem to be a place prone to very bad earthquakes. We can only hope that those who were affected more severely are safe. The country does seem to be in a period of uneasiness.
It’s daylight savings here in Florence, so we got an extra hour of sleep last night. It’s almost 5 PM, and the sun looks like it’s going to set any minute. I napped a lot today, grocery shopped, did laundry, and cleaned the apartment. It’s been really nice having the apartment to myself, but my flatmates should be home from Greece in a few hours; I’ll be excited to have them back.
What a fall break! xo ~e.
