The Dante in Bologna

Today was my first day at The Dante Alighieri in Bologna. There are four guys in our class, all young Asians, Justin’s sort of age or younger, who work in the tourist industries of their countries, and me. Our teacher’s name is Angela, and she is lovely. She is busy doing a Masters’ degree in translation. We did 4 hours straight of Italian. In the afternoon I felt a bit tired, and so took a walk in the lovely Margherita Gardens, just up the road from Bologna home. On the way, I picked up a delcious pear ice cream from the local gelateria … Immagine that! I decided to eat in tonight as well. There is a a very good restaurant at San Tommaso and their gnocchi is excellent. I also had a glass of white wine, bread sticks and a limoncello – wow for 8€. No lessons tomorrow, as 2 June is Republic Day for Italy …. Will decide what to do in the morning … Good night and deams of gold …. Arrivederci

Today I went for the first time at Dante Alighieri in Bologna. There are 4 young Asians in our group, the same age maybe Justin, or otherwise younger, working in the field of tourism in their countries, and I. Our teacher, named Angela, it's wonderful. Is now a master's degree in translation at the University of Bologna. We did 4 hours of Italian. Later, I felt a little tired and so I took a walk in the beautiful gardens near my Daisy "Bologna home.". I also bought a PEAR ice cream so good. I decided to eat at home tonight – there's a St. Thomas restaurant and the food is very good – dumplings, buns, grisini, wine and limoncello – 8 €. There are no classes tomorrow – June 2 is the Republic day here in Italy. In the morning I decide what I'm going to today ... Good night and sweet dreams ...
