So much to tell, so little time!
Italian class went well this morning. After my test, I was placed in the class with the fifth little workbook, which is good because last summer I was in the fourth workbook. I still sound like a little kid when I speak Italian, but I’m slowly getting better.
This year, I am taking the super-intensive class, which means I get an extre 90 minutes in the afternoon and don’t get out until 2:00.
However, I still had time to take the two buses and the Metro train that take you out to Il Santuario della Madonna del Divine Amore. It’s one of the seven official pilgrimage churches of Rome.
The ride out there took about 89 minutes, but I really felt like I got out of the city for a bit, and the whole complex was beautiful.
There’s a new church . . .
And an old church.
Plus a Lourdes grotto.
In the evening, my school hosted a “tandem night,” where we head to a local place for drinks and appetizers and talk in Italian with students from other classes.
A full but very good day!
