Yesterday, Maria, Towe and I spent the afternoon ambling about Venice, which is very easy to get to by train. We spent the entire day speaking Italian, even though English is much easier for us (especially me, obviously). Aren’t you proud of us? Aside from a lunatic fruit vendor who swore at Towe and refused to sell her an apple, we had a great time (I don’t understand why the fruttaioli are so mean in this country). 

Maria and Towe.

I then returned to Reggio Emilia to have a delicious dinner at Paprika with my friend Elena. It’s a fun place to go and they have very nice pizza. I probably should have had the waitress take the photo with our food rather than my mess.

Mmm…profiterole! I look way too excited about these cream-filled treats.
