Trevi Fountain & Pantheon: K's Life in Rome
What were you grateful for this week? Many things, but mainly that my family was was fine in FL during the hurricane, and also, that K2 and I had an easier time getting around!
What was the most difficult or challenging part of this week? The most difficult part of this week was the language barrier. We are improving, but there are some miscommunications, and sometimes the boys don't want to talk in English.
Tell us about a "wow" moment you had this week. A "wow" moment that I had this week was that I was with the family or at home almost 24/7 until the boys started school on Friday. I also helped Chiara around the house.
Tell us about your week! I have to admit; this week has been much better than last week. It really does take some time to adjust to another culture (which I definitely am still figuring out) and being away from family. I was with the kids for most of the week because they didn’t start school until Friday. But, when Friday came around, K2 and I went on a walk to the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. Seeing the Trevi Fountain is definitely a must if you’re in Rome.
We stopped to grab some gelato and pizza (which was only 4 Euros, and reallyyyy good.) while a cute, old, Italian man played the violin for us. On Saturday, we ate take out pizza at home (my cute host parents were so kind and invited K2 to come to dinner!) and had a good time talking around the table. K2 slept over, and early in the morning, we left to go to church. Which, was so good. We seriously were so excited to go! Everyone was so nice, and they even provided lunch afterwards! (It was Stake Conference, not a normal Sunday.)
Traveling around this week has been so much easier than last week. I feel like I’m finally starting to get the hang of the bus system around here.
