Kate: An Italian 4th of July

July 12, 2009

Another week has passed and it is amazing how time flies. Our time in Rome is slowly winding down but I feel like we only arrived here the other day. This coming week is going to be pretty exciting with a plethora of visitors from America arriving. Clare’s family is coming which means Ross is going to get to experience our favorite professor, Overton, as well as two other girls have friends arriving. This has potential to be a fabulous week. We also have a birthday to celebrate, our dear Micah turns 21 on Wednesday. Everyone is required to celebrate his birthday, Sara claims she will be taking attendance.

So what have we accomplished in the past week? Well almost half of the group was taken out by various ailments. We all survived, never fear, but Italians believe the answer to any ailment is aspirin. We celebrated the 4th of July by having the best American Style Cookout possible. Micah was happy to grill burgers at the other apartment and we made a fabulous fruit salad, along with chocolate chip cookies. I can honestly tell you that the fruit here has not impressed me as much as I thought it would. The strawberries in Vienna were better, but that is neither here nor there. After the picnic we played charades. Micah purposely separated Sara, Clare and myself during the game, and funny thing is: My team won. That’s right, I was able to guess on my team and steal from the opposite team so Micah’s plan failed.

This coming week is going to be jam packed, so I will update you when I can
