So here we are at Paolo’s, a real nice italian restaurant in Washington D.C., of course we were very well accompanied by our other friends from school but we couldn’t sit with them so we took another table, in the picture it’s me, Karen, Giuditta, Giulia and Sara. Continue reading…
I arrived in New York City few days before the start of the IIB program because I wanted to orient myself in the city. My flight landed in the late afternoon and this allowed me to have a wonderful view on the city by night.

As someone mentioned a couple of days ago, all of us went roadtripping this weekend. Some went straight to Washington DC while others went to Atlantic City on Friday, Washington DC on Saturday and Philadelphia on Sunday.

BUT what’s up with all the insects?
Since I moved to New Paltz have I seen a lot of creepy and scary insects. The first one I saw was bright orange and had almost ten legs! Uh! And when I talked to my parents a spider came down from the ceiling and wanted to say Hello. I freaked out of course! Today I saw an insect that looked like a tiny grey lizard. Why do all the insects look so creepy and scary?
