We had a little bit of a celebration... and I made new friend(s). We ate at Osteria d'orso which was really good! I had the risotto with brie, mushrooms and truffles. YUM! It was really comical trying to fit all 10 of us on one long bench-style table, and then it quickly became embarassing after happy birthday was sung rather raucously first in Italian, then Spanish, and then English (with an attempt in German). Um. Yeah. So much for trying to blend in. :)
Still on the hunt for apartments... which is a bit nerve wracking. I depart for the sanctuary at Domodossola on Wednesday. Ah well. Que sara', sara'. Eh?
Thanks for the photos John!
This is my bff. She doesn't care if I make mistakes in Italian.
In fact, she lets me talk as much as I'd like!
