The last two days were spent under Sara’s roof! Sara is a girl I met through the Hanwa work camp in Japan last year. I can’t believe that our paths are crossing once again. She was so sweet and we have countless memories from last summer. Being a local college student, she lives amongst three girls and one other guy from the same university. Her apartment is on the second floor in the heart of Venice. A majority of the conversations that went on these past two days were a mystery, but I tried to pick up a few words here and there. Living in an “Italian home” must’ve felt as clueless as this. Arcobaleno made the language barrier so hard to break.
DID YOU KNOW: Arcobaleno means rainbow. I’ve been living here for two months and I finally know what my residence hall means in English. I mean, it makes sense yeah? Rainbow = different colors, Different colors = different ethnicities?
If I was living like this for four months, I would’ve definitely pick up Italian a lot faster. I think I got more Italian out of these past two days than the two months I was here. (Which is pretty cool!)
Her cat was the cutest and even made me consider getting a cat. I’m a dog person so this is a first. lol CHE CARINO (How cute) ❤
Sara took me to the Museum Ca’ Rezzonico and Gallerie dell’Academia. Since Sara is an art fanatic herself (her dream is to work at an art auction) , it was a great opportunity for her to shed some light on me. I’m not art’s number one fan, but these museums showed me the details + beauty in paintings. The details that goes into each piece made me really want to touch all the layers but I obediently kept my hands in my pockets.
