Wait. What. For the past six days, I have been having the time of my life. With only 20 cumulative hours of sleep, I galavanted around this magical city, climbed its highest heights, explored its lowest lows, hiked its ancient ruins, and got lost in its modern streets. I have learned so much — this experience is already so much different from my other travels. I am learning about what I am seeing and appreciating its rich history. Though I only managed 3 hours of sleep a night, I somehow soaked it all in, the information and the art, and was able to experience Rome as a scholar by day and 20-year-old student by night.
Now I am in my pensione in Florence awaiting my first day of classes tomorrow. Life, truly, is but a dream. Ciao my darlings!
