We had a very smooth flight to Paris. Kudos to the pilot for the best landing, ever. Not even kidding. As we were connecting in Paris at the Charles de Gaulle airport, we noticed about 20 US students who were connecting also. Alli and I were a bit embarrassed for them, because they were being completely obnoxious. No wonder Parisians hate Americans. One girl yelled “Who wants champagne? Chardonnay? It’s on me!” Let’s take into account that it is 6 in the morning.
Alli kept saying, I really hope they’re not on our flight to Florence. 5 minutes after we boarded our small plane, the obnoxious girls walked on. Hahaha…Of course that would happen.
On a brighter note, I am impressed to say that there have been very attractive Europeans thus far.
Anyway- we arrived at our hotel, Hotel Baglioni, which is located in the heart of Florence right by the station. The hotel’s beautiful!
It still hasn’t really hit me yet that I will be here for several months. Tonight, at dinner we had a 5 course meal at the hotel’s rooftop restaurant. The view from the restaurant overlooked the Duomo. Nbd… Also our dinner lasted for 3 hours, love that!
So excited for what’s in store! This week, we have orientation and a lot of activities to get to know the city. On Wednesday, Alli and I will be moving into our apartment, which is located right by the Mercato!
Buena Sera! Ciao~
