andiamo a fare spese

(translation: we go shopping)

i'm working on creating a small curriculum to teach conversational english. lessons start next week :)
at the same time, i am learning even more italian in the process. exciting!

did you know that milk is not refrigerated here until you open it? kind of like a jar of jam.. not refrigerated until it's opened. weird. so we buy these boxes of milk that don't expire until december. weird.

and every time i go to the grocery store, i find something else that is so different than at home. like last week... they had rabbits for sale. and by rabbits, i mean whole rabbits sold the same way that chicken breasts are wrapped/styrofoam-plated. including the head. it was gross. apparently the meat is pretty good, though. hm.

i'm tired. and we just got a lot more things to work on this week. including having the children's program for the park planned out by 1pm tomorrow. ouch. better get moving on that!

This was my favorite thing ever! I'm so glad you are at least venturing out to see what other foods are out there...
