Rebekah reflects on her term in Italy
After a free weekend spent in the seaside city of Rimini, I returned back to a mellow Monday in Ferrara. It was nice coming back to Ferrara after so much traveling, it has started to feel like a home away from home which is extremely comforting. Today we had a few hours of class time in the morning and learned about the Mediterranean Sea and tectonic plates. During class we also compared sea shells that we had found within the past week from the beaches, we all voted on whose collection of shells was the best! As a celebration of the sea shell contest Michela took us all out to gelato later that night, it was delicious.
