I have been taking Italian classes. For an hour every couple days, I walk across town to a small Italian Language school and meet up with Antonella. The walking to class may be my favorite part: I stroll past clusters of older Italian gentlemen and am greeted with "Ciao, bella!" and "Buongiorno!" I feel like I am strolling through the idyllic world from the first half of La Vita e Bella.
As for the Italian classes, we have yet to see if it will do more than just really mess up my Spanish!
Last week, Antonella and Nicola (the school's director) wanted to make a big Italian lunch with Owen and me. The food here is UmUm GOOD!
We started with Onions, Tropea Onions (Cepolla). Fried in Olive Oil with Olives, Caper and a few tomatoes.
