The next two days are scheduled for orientation at the Institute. Getting up the next morning was very difficult even though we slept for almost 10 hours, we were all still a little jet lagged. We walked towards the school and stopped at a cafe along the way to get breakfast, breakfast in Italy is all pastries that are extremely sweet and really strong coffee. I'm trying really hard to learn how to pronounce the names of everything but its tricky. Our orientation was held in this ginormous ...
