|All our luggage! And we thought we packed light....|
|Our little couches and storage closet|
|Our cute little kitchen!|
|Kitchen table and washer...no dyers in Italy!|
|Bathroom. Mina and I share this one, then our roomies have their own.|
After a long nap we went out with some of our friends to experience a bit more of the night life here. Going out is different than at home, Italians don't really "pregame," and when they go out they aren't hammered like all the Americans here. It's very obvious who the Americans are compared to the locals.
Directly below our apartment is a popular bar called The Fish Pub. It's pretty cool inside, and we're thinking it will probably become a regular hangout for us. It was half/half Americans and Italians there and they are always passing out flyers with different themed nights and drink deals. Because of this place being so convenient for us I'm sure we'll be starting off many of our nights there this semester.
If you can believe it or not, Mina and I slept literally ALL day today (Friday). We did absolutely nothing all day but sleep. As bad as it sounds we really just needed a day to catch up on sleep and relax. From the moment we got to Florence we've been on the go! api has done a really good job keeping us busy and taking us on many tours, but it's been exhausting.
We had dinner with our roomies Gabby, Erika, and Brittany at ZaZa's which is right across the street from our apartment. Delicious food and tasty wine! As always, dessert was the best.
