... Italian motorbike racers.
They did 2 laps around the square and that was awesome.
And then we just walked around town for awhile.
Overall I LOVED this place this is my new favorite because there is animals, fooz ball table, ping pong table, a pool and there is people to play with all the time. You don't get that very often.

More to come in the catch up..
... that I can reference later because I don't want to forget any details about this trip.
Also when I get back my parents will be joining me in Florence. They will actually be in Italy when I'm away too. When they found out I was going to study abroad my mom immediately started on her plan to visit me. That plan turned into a cruise that they will be on the same week I am away.
