The past 3 days have gone by in a blur!! As you can probably tell from the title of this post, I finally got my luggage which is a huge relief!! From talking to Lufthansa and United Airways for a few days it seems like my suitcase logged more miles than I did. Now, all I need to do is continue hunting for apartments and hope something decent comes up soon.
This is of a video I took a couple of days ago at the intersection near the hotel:
Today was the first day of my intensive Italian language course and it went pretty well. I am excited for the class because I want to learn as much Italian as possible while I am in Italy... how awesome would it be if I came home fluent?! My actual semester business classes don't start until February 15th, so it will be nice to be able to have a couple more weeks without the added stress of those classes. It seems like everyone from the other schools can take all their classes here pass/fail so I may be one of the few who will actually need to study!
Picture I took from the top of the Duomo. It is the cathedral of Milan and it is the center of the city. A better picture can be seen at this link: Duomo di Milano
Unfortunately, as you can see from the picture above, I haven't seen the sun since arriving in Italy. Hopefully the next time you'll hear from me I'll post a sunny picture :)
Ciao mi amici!
