So… three weeks passed since my arrival in Faenza. This time – no pumpkin. I got a roommate and she cut my pumpkin… That’s what happens when in one house are living 3 girls from different countries. But oh well, we baked a pie from it.
I am still getting a daily surprise from this little town. For example, no ice cream for Monday??? 😲 😲 😲 I wanted to start the new week in a sweet way… There is a little and cozy gelateria in front of our apartment, but seems like that place doesn’t like Mondays. Well, who does?
Since all the volunteers from both organizations (PiGreco & SE.M.I) are here, we are getting more involved into our tasks and Italian living way. Last week all of us started Italian language lessons in the school (it’s interesting feeling when you are graduated from university and you have to back to the school. But if we want to teach the kids we have to learn something too, aren’t we? No one is perfect). I even bought a book, written in Italian… Good luck for me.
1st time in the doposcuola (after school) … A little bit nervous, because of the language’s barrier. Here comes help from Google Translate and other foreigners’ people. But it’s okay, soon I will be able to speak more fluently in Italian. 😉 😜 😉 Before jumping into homework and other studying stuff, in doposcuola we are starting the day with a little game (every day is a different one), which helps kids to improve their English. That time we tried “Guess who?” with various superheroes and other characters from the cartoons (kids had to make various questions with answers no & yes which will describe their character and then try to guess).
How to finish a week in Faenza? I mean, does this town ever sleep?! Last weekend we attended the “MEI festival” – probably, I haven’t seen so many people in Faenza before! Various music all day long… Don’t get me wrong – I am not complaining, I am still feeling like living in some kind of fairy tale here: the park with animals (chickens, ducks, peacocks…), a lot of bicycles, many many many puppies here too! If you are looking for a nanny for your dog in Faenza – please contact me, I will be happy to host him/her for a day, week, month or for the whole year! 😍 ❤︎ ❤︎ ❤︎
Sometimes it’s too hard to stay in one place, you know that feeling? That’s why this weekend few members of “PiGreco & SE.M.I” family went to Bologna! We got a little bit lost in the “never ending market”, in the crowd of people, but at 8PM in the evening we managed to catch the train 💪 😂 .
See you in a week or two, I will learn more words from Italian menu 😉. A presto!
