First Day at School

It looks like access to the internet is going to be more difficult than I thought, so I'm writing my blogs in little txt files and uploading them when I find somewhere with an internet connection.

My journey to the school on my first morning says everything about this place: via Marconi, piazza Fra' Girolamo Savonarola, via Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola, via Massaccio, It is looking beautiful in the sunshine. It is so refreshing to wake up to sunshine instead of incessant clouds and rain.

The eminent professor is setting up the lecture room for a ten o'clock start - actually, we are running on the academic quarter here, so we are starting at 10.15! Ah, Italy. How I've missed that academic quarter.

what did you eat? mmmmmmm

don't be discouraged from asking questions. by the way, are you finding your Italian is coming back to you smoothly?

Yes it is actually. I am finding it such a different experience. The lectures are in English at the moment, but that's because the professor has been asked to lecture in English - his Italian is excellent, and he's German. The prof on Thurs and Fri is Italian, so that will be another challenge.
