July 3, 2011, 7:30 PM Italy time
Spent entire day at the beach. I mean entire day. Felt so good. I think I am falling in love with Italy. I feel like I am learning how to not be…hmm, I’m not really sure actually. It’s sort of hard to explain. I have a routine here. I pray more. I enjoy things more. I think and observe without judgment. I sort of like it. I think I will miss Taormina.
Tomorrow is 4th of July and I’m missing friends and family. I will be spending it at a surprise birthday of my Germana’s brother in law. The party is at the “country house;” no idea what that means but sounds cool. Apparently I will be eating every Sicilian specialty possible. Super excited.
