1) A traditional Italian meal comes in courses and the first course is always pasta. LOVE IT!
2) To do as the Romans you must never touch the brake pad. Even when there's someone in your way, swerve around them.
5) Gelatos are considered a staple. Along with pizza, pasta and paninis.
The last couple days have awesome! We have officially started classes, where we sit among the ruins of Rome. In fact, our first spot we were told we were about 60 feet from where Julius Ceasar was assasinated. Can anyone say "et tu Brute?"
Today we did another day of classes. I was able to do my first presentation, which was on the Pantheon, and we made our way back and forth on the streets. Since my camera was charged today, I was able to get lots of good pictures. But don't worry, those of you complaining there aren't any pics of me: I literally had another member of the group grab my camera off my neck and tell me to get in the picture!
