a quick update
All right so I rarely have access to a computer lately, so I decided to take advantage of the time that I have right now to write a quick update just to let everyone know that I'm doing well and havent gained 20 lbs due to pasta.
Im in love with viterbo. This city has the most fascinating culture and history. In America, teenagers will normally hang out at the movies, or go to eachothers houses. Here in viterbo, they'll hang out by the fountain in piazza del commune, and ride vespas.
I have found that there are very few similarities to American culture. Here, the people practice a slower way of life. I'm constantly in awe at how everyone takes the time to say hello to everyone they know, or ciao to the guy who made your espresso at the caffe. I love how people stop to smell the roses, and how no one has a sense of time.
Right now Im in the computer lab at my school, underneath the frescos that adorn the walls of our 16th century palazzo school.
My friends have just informed me that we are going to go eat pizza at the resturant next door for our two and a half hour lunch. Im going to go, but know that I have already written the next couple updates. I'll add them as soon as I can once I get my computer to school and the highspeed connection running.
Love you all.
