Slowly but surely, I'm catching up.
Hope held a dinner party (literally the CUTEST dinner party) I've ever been to in my life. It was ADORABLE. We all had name settings and there were candles everywhere :)
Mexican food!! And plenty of wine.
It was SO great! Hope has a HUGE balcony that overlooks via dei Cimatori, with a view of a church out that back window there. Perfect.
At the end of the dinner, we all got to take home a vase of flowers. And by vase, I mean recycled wine bottle.
Just a lil somethin' somethin' from class. Salmon and bacon over a pear sauce.
A day or so later, Kat, Haven, and I walked around exploring, trying to find a particular garden (that we never ended up finding).
An Italian art school.
We ended up in the Boboli Gardens during their free week. Everything was free that week- that is, entry to the government funded/run places like museums and gardens.
And for dinner... yet another amazing meal at The Diner. Well-deserved, after having saved up so much money and restraining from eating out so often.
