(Orientation) Pictures Speak More Than Words At The Moment
The first two pictures are views of the piazza which is right at the end of the major street running down Perugia (we are very lucky that our apartment is only a 5/10 minute walk from the fountain). The building to the right is of the town hall. Our orientation for our program, with the general Umbra students who just came in last night, was inside this building (look at how gorgeous it was inside!). Truthfully, though, all I learned from the orientation is that the national sport of Italy is chasing women (so watch out friendly American girls! the Italian women just have no tolerance for it).
These are views that we literally just stumbled upon as we were walking down little side-alleys trying to find a pizzeria. I hate saying these don't do it justice but if only I could really show you. It's easy to forget how high up we are when we are tucked away in the center, and older part, of Perugia.
