I think that coming to Italy will definitely be the best decision I have made in my life thus far. I've only been here about two days, and everything about this city and about the country amazes me. People live to live here,imagine that? I admire the fact that dinners are to be enjoyed, and the average day includes a nap and shopping. I may never come back to the States! My roommate and I spent the entire day grocery shopping, and exploring the streets along the Arno river, the markets and just soaking up Florence's beauty. Of course we had to pay a visit to the H&M which happens to be about a thousand times better than the H&M on Michigan Ave.
