|Enjoying a drink at the airport|
While waiting for some of my classmates at the airport, Kelly, one of our leaders and I grabbed a Coca-Light. I haven't seen 'Coca-Light' since Argentina. The taxi ride from the airport to our apartments was a little scary at times. (Drivers pretty much ignore the painted lines on the road...much like they do in other big cities as well)

We're staying in a residential part of Italy. One of my roommates and friend Meylin, who is from El Salvador, and I discussed how where we're living in Rome reminding us of other big cities we've been too such as El Salvador, Buenos Aires and Brooklyn, New York.
We ventured out to a market to get some snack food as everyone was pretty hungry this afternoon. My grandma packed me some buttermilk biscuits to bring with me on my carry-on. I'm so glad she did, they're delicious and quite filling! Tonight we have our welcome dinner and I can't wait to eat some good Italian food. I'm looking forward to learning much about Italian culture and seeing all of the history Rome has to offer.
Some pictures before I left. I was so glad my parents were able to take me to the airport.
