Then they broke up into three smaller groups and each of us monitored them while Francesca gave oral exams to some students at the front of the room. The group I talked to contained an Italian girl who spoke English very well, two Italian boys, and two Asian boys. They were studying American history, namely slavery and the Civil War. They asked me to tell them more about the topics, so I gave them a simple, brief explanation. Then they started asking me more questions like where I've been in the U.S. and if I've seen the Grand Canyon. The girl told me she has been to Florida and California before and we talked briefly about that. One boy, who donned a "Jeep" sweatshirt asked me some of the most amusing questions. He kept shaking the girls arm and saying something in Italian and she kept refusing him, saying something along the lines of you can't ask that. Finally he turned to me, and asked, "Do you have a boyfriend?" I started laughing and the girl smacked him, I answered "No, but I'm glad you figured out how to ask that in English." He later also asked me if I like Justin Bieber and if I like One Direction.
After my morning teaching, I went on a little adventure. First I stopped at the copy store and printed my plane ticket. Then I headed to my new favorite place, the bookstore.

|A horrible picture, but this is my street and in the distance you can see the sun setting over the hill, with all the Tuscan style houses on it. So pretty in real life!|
Dinner was good tonight. Rosanna made pesto pasta and plain chicken. But there was one thing on my plate that I have no idea what it was. It looked somewhat like stuffing, but I think it was maybe potato and cabbage. Whatever it was, it tasted like smelly feet. For dessert, we had these small donut-like cookies filled with cream and rolled in sugar.
Now its time for bed so I can get up super early to head to Barcelona (whoop whoop!).
