Doing The First Steps: Rome

Day One:
  • Arrive in Rome.
  • One 50lb bag left in Philadelphia.
  • About 20 of my fellow Bernardians patiently wait an hour for me to go through the Italian customer service line to have my luggage redirected.
  • Italians haven't had this much snow in 26 years, and we saw children sledding on a boogie board.
  • A few Bernardians and I go for a stroll and help push an elderly Italian man's car out of his snowy parking spot.
  • Drank my first sip of an Italian latte.
  • A beautiful Mass with Father Carola and my new Rome family.
  • I took this photo at a nearby cafe. The quote reads "facendo i primi passi" which translates to "doing the first steps." In just one day "doing the first steps" has gotten me so excited about what this semester holds!
