Gathering Steam

On September 30, I sent off my application to L’Universita per Stranieri in Perugia, Italia. The acceptance letter arrived early this morning! My sincerest apologies to everyone who listened to my worries that it would never arrive.

Last summer, I stepped off a train in the wonderful city of Ferrari. Or that’s what I thought when I saw the Ferrari 2015 Cavalcade. It was a beautiful and sobering scene. I was allowed to stand next to tires that are more expensive than a year in college. The¬†Cathedral behind me was built centuries before the establishment of my home country. This and a dusky sunset composed my first impression of Perugia.

Well played Italy, well played.
