Well, there's not really much to report this week. In school, we have been working with pastels in art, and it turns out that I do NOT do well in color. We went to Santa Croce cathedral today in history, which was very cool inside, but I did not remember to bring my camera. Also today I got a 100% on my Italian quiz! We watched a really good italian movie in Life and Culture called L'Ultimo Bacio (The Last Kiss). Other than that, it has been pretty uneventful.

Cal, Jordan and I went to a really good restaurant for lunch today called La Bussola. They have a good student menu, plus the real menu looks really good as well. We sat at the bar and actually watched them make our pizzas and put them in the brick oven. Plus, the owner is really nice and gave us a discount. We are making friends in all the right places! We also finally tried a Chinese place for dinner earlier in the week, which was good and cheap, but different than any Chinese restaurant I've been to before. We have also gotten two recomendations for sushi restaurants recently, so those will have to be checked out very soon.

Cal, Jennifer and I went to see Cinderella Man last night in a very cool theater in the center of the city. I took a few pictures, which didn't really turn out well for lack of light. But it was really fun- we drank beer and there was an intermission! Plus, we all actually really enjoyed the movie.

We have decided not to travel this weekend, mostly because we want to go to Greece for the break (in 2 1/2 weeks!!), and we all checked our bank accounts this week. But who can complain about staying in Florence for the weekend, right? Besides, some of my friends and I are doing Corri La Vita on Sunday, which is sort os Italy's version of Race for the Cure. Except none of us are actually racing, we all signed up for the much tamer-sounding walk instead. And everyone who walks gets matching Emporio Armani Corri La Vita t-shirts. Also, we are considering going to see the Fiorentina soccer team play after the race.
