So I arrived to florence around 6:30 pm it was sunset. The airport is super tiny i never had a plane do a 360 to get to the gate, and then i got my luggage eveyrone was super happy and friendly giving kisses to each other old people too! like va bene ciao! and i went outside, and i had to get myself to the hotel. I could either take a taxi around 20 euros, train or bus. the only thing i saw the bus so it was 4 euros.. i felt like i was in the real world show, going wiht my suitcase one, just one easier to carry though and got to the bus and got to the train statia, stazione santa novella and then i was supossed to walk to the hotel... seeing street signs kinda hard in florence, i began walking and using my italian, parla inglese? and if so well piece of cake if not i would try to ask them where to go then i used my spanish and found my way.. Went to the hotel and met my roommates quicklied shower and went out to dinner with them and program coordinator. Dinner was super good, italian cuisine is very good, yet people eat late here and there's lots of courses with white wine etc.. and the dessert was amazing! so we walked back to our hotel and just bonded mroe with the roommates it was cool, we were laying down to go to sleep and then it kinda hit me, i said while in silence "guys we are in freaking florence!" and just all laughed.
Monday- Move in into Apartment
Aaaaaaaaah!! I’m in love! I freaking love Florence its amazing! I love the town, I am still getting to know my way around ive been here like 2 days and 2 nights but I am in love. Its like a mix of mexico city but super condensed and clean and well bello! Their architecture and designs are freaking amazing and I don’t mean just the Duomo but even my apartment I love it! Its super spacious like I really want to know how much it costs because my apt in westwood is def smaller than this. My roommate got stuck in the bathroom so the landlord had to come back, to unlock him it was a little funny. Florence however is kinda touristy like you could get around maybe speaking English but once I get my Italian refreshed I will start speaking Italian , so once l get back maybe I don’t want to move back… it will be a place I would live in or visit, maybe im speaking to fast but soo far I love.
