I finished the last of my introductory Italian today. I can speak (parlo) a little (un po) in Italian (Italiano). Since my lessons are oral and Italian has very complicated spelling and pronunciation rules, I have no idea how to write it. Somehow arreviderche looks wrong but I think you will know what I mean. Tomorrow we are off bright and early for an 8 hour layover in LA and overnight to Rome. I had plans to do a couple of posts this week but my computer crashed with my drafts creating chaos in my office. This will have to do.
I’ve been nervous as a cat the past few days worrying about what I will have forgotten and only discover when we get to Rome. You would think I would be more relaxed since I have been gone for a month earlier this year and survived. Logic doesn’t help.
I’d tell you that Bob and Justin will pick up the slack while I’m away but you probably wouldn’t believe me. I haven’t been good at posting while abroad even though the internet makes it easy. I’m going to give it a try this time. Probably mostly pictures but there is bound to be something crazy going on in Rome even if it is only the tourists.
Now it’s time to pack.
