The Florence Four

Internship in Florence, Italy

Three weeks down, and four more to go.

It is crazy to think that we have already been here for three weeks. Everything is becoming so normal to me that I have started to not even realize that I am in Italy, except for the language barrier. The third week has had a lot of exciting things for all of us. We had a tour of Chiantiland on Friday. This tour was quite exhausting but well worth it in the end. We got to experience four cities; San Gimignano, Siena, Monteriggioni, andChianti. The sun was out all day long and it was a perfect day to get to see all the sights. We even met a couple from Australia that were traveling to spoil themselves since they just finished paying for their son to go to school to become a doctor! It only took him three years to get his degree. They kind of became our mom and dad for the trip because we were the youngest there, but it was really appreciated.
