La rossa, La dotta e La grassa
No words can describe how much I love this city. The surroundings, the atmosphere, the people, the shopping...THE FOOD!
My good friend Sarah invited me to come with her to visit the city for a mini break, and wow am I glad she did. This city is home to the oldest university in the world, Università di Bologna (although an exact date is uncertain, it is believed that it was initially founded in 1088...doesn't that make Virginia Tech seem like an infant?!?) Despite being so rich in history, the city is extremely vibrant and alive. While there I was able to eat like I was going to the chair, shop like I wasn't living on loans and hang out with some locals who renamed me Marie Michelle (because LAUR-en MITCH-ell is difficult for Italians to pronounce.)
Tanti Baci, mi amichi. I need to go dream of Bologna.
