Mariah's second update!
Hallo Freunde, Mein Deutsch ist jetzt viel besser. (My German is much better now) Thank goodness. It makes getting around the city and meeting people way more fun! My past week and a half was dedicated to the Berlinale, which is a huge film festival that runs throughout several theaters around the city. I’m taking a film class that allowed us Accreditation passes, which pretty much got...
Annie and Maddie (second update)
Ciao from Florence! We can’t believe that it’s already been 6 weeks. Time has flown by, as every day in Florence is packed with classes and exploring the city, and almost every weekend has been spent discovering a new city.

Ciao Tutti! It’s Annie and Maddie writing from Florence, Italy! We have been here for almost two weeks and we’re just starting to get the hang of the language (after a year-long hiatus), living with an Italian host family, and having free time. Neither of us have class on Tuesdays or Thursdays so we have been spending every free moment exploring Florence and the rest of Tuscany. As you can...
