It's 11:30 pm and we just finished dinner which began around 8:30 pm. This is kind of amazing, but slightly probmatic at the same time. My new host mother Loves to cook and to have guests over, so every other night is like a dinner party. Today for example, she prepared a three course meal in honor of a student who is leaving this week. Some students from her studio and a coworker also joined us for the meal.
The first course is always a heaping plate of pasta, the second course varies but usually involves some sort of meat, salad, bread, etc. And the dessert was this great chocolate tort and biscotti and Vin Santo. At one point there were four bottles of wine on the table. And it's a Tuesday night!
I kept telling her that I couldn't breathe from eating too much but this pleases her and she insists I eat more. Haha, so it's a challenge for my stomach as well as my language skills as we only speak in Italian. Each dinner is like a mini victory for me. I'm updating from my phone right now and although I can't upload pictures from my camera I might be able to upload pictures from my phone! Hopefully tomorrow or at least the day after. I still can't breathe, haha omg really, too much food!
