Absorbing the city

My experience at the International Studies Institute in Florence has been amazing.  Firenze is the perfect size for a study abroad student: not so big a city that I get lost, but not so small that I ever run out of things to do.  “Italia” is a beautiful country full of art, culture, and the most sensational food I have ever had in my entire life.  I am fortunate enough to have studied Italian back in the States, so my language skills have served me well, and I am always finding new opportunities to speak with Italians, whether it’s at a dinner planned by the school or out on the streets.  I know I will enjoy the rest of my semester here in Firenze!
