A room with no view

"Well, Tara..." you may find yourself wondering, "what have you been doing with your time in Firenze?" You might be aware that I am in class every day from 9am to 1pm and then the sun sets at approximately 4:30 in the afternoon here. And maybe you know that Firenze is a relatively small town and once you have looked at 20 gorgeous Renaissance piazzas you feel you have a pretty firm handle on their charms. So that leaves a person with a fairly strong aversion to cold weather with a lot of spare time, particularly in the evenings. So what does a gal like me do with her time? She studies Italian diligently of course. She checks her email at a local internet cafe. Then she makes dinner with her international pals and afterwards, settles down to read a good book. These are the ones I have read during my time here. I recommend them all strongly.

  1. I've read only one, Room of course. It's so good, and what perfect timing for you!

    Isn't Mansfield Park a movie that's been done recently? I think I've seen it, actually. Very well done as well but I need to read the book. Thanks for the other recc's as well. Love to you!
