... university building in the world. After much debate, we decided that the anatomy building was the oldest.

We found restaurants that we could return to but there ar so many, no need to go twice. And we cooked at the apartment twice (or was it three times?) and it was yummy. Today we went to bologna's mortadello festival, sampled a few and ate some snacks made out of ...
