Feeling clever in my room in Taormina, Italy
We just got back from the most intense precession I have ever been a part of. We went to church at 7 and then celebrated something I didn’t understand because it was in Italian. But we had a precession around the ENTIRE CITY OF TAORMINA following the priests and stopping every once in a while to pray. It was amazing. The entire city was involved and it was decorated with flowers. People lit off fireworks and had sparklers. It was amazing.
We ate kabobs after. Actually it was a gyro, but they called it Kabobs. They also said it was Turkish, not Greek. I don’t really care because it was delicious. It made me miss my mom.
BUT I am feeling sooo clever right now because I was able to barter a date with the crazy lady’s friend for use of her internet. So I should have internet in…10 minutes. muahahahahhah
