better, buildings are prettier, and it's cleaner too! We slept in a lot
today (noon at least). We wanted to go to church at the Duomo but we
didn't wake up in time. Oops. The bells are soooo loud all the time, but
they add to the culture here. I'm trying to sleep and then at 6 am
DINNGGGG DING DONG DONG DINGDINGDING (continued for an entire minute).
I have a love hate relationship with the bell tower currently. We
decided just walk around and shop today FINALLY!
Italians NEVER eat as they walk, but I really like this part of the culture
The leather market was so cool. The leather was so soft and smelled so strong of genuine
leather. I am resisting the urge to make purchases because I have the
gift of time. But believe me, I will be making some purchases for sure.
It was so exciting to me that i almost used my italian phone for the
first time to text my mom to tell her about it (i couldnt figire out T9
again). We went to this coffee shop that is a bar and restaurant too.
The owners were so nice and talked to us for a while. They told us we
could have discounts whenever we come! When it gets nicer (march) we can
go eat outside on that patio
was cold, which I thought was very interesting and something you would
probably never see in the US. Italian culture at its finest. So far
loving life. Ciaooooooo.
P.S. will someone please go show this to Grandma?? Grazie.
Oh and also sorry for the typos in this blog, no time to proofread!
