Welcome to Italy!
Today the students arrived at the villa in two Mercedes vans, from Rome. Everyone is so excited that their happiness overrules their exhaustion! Yolanda is the only one who is not tired, she was on a flight with plenty of open seats and was able to stretch out and sleep. No wonder she looks so refreshed and ready to go!
Upon arrival, the students explored the grounds of the villa, ooh’s and aaah’s all around. I sent them down to say hello to the donkeys before lunch. The group enjoyed an amazing lunch of pasta (gluten free for some, no problems accommodating) grilled eggplant and zucchini, bread, and vino — of course.
We introduced each other and shared where we were from. As it turns out I have two repeat students, Kris and Katie (who brought along her husband Tom). I love repeat students, it’s such a compliment to have someone return to my class. Thank you!
Our drivers joined us for lunch, Ermanno and Emaneule joked with the ladies, they asked Pamela about some new expressions in English and taught us a few easy words in Italian. Pamela expressed to me over and over how wonderful the drivers are and how she couldn’t do it without them. What a great group of people we have together here in Italy.
As it turns out, Deb and Suzy are from Traverse City, MI and I am teaching there in August. More repeat students, perhaps? Too funny, they didn’t know I was coming to them this summer. But, you can’t complain about having made it to Italy.
We have a wonderful group of ladies, including three sets of sisters. Michigan, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Orlando are some of the places people have traveled from. I’ll learn more tonight as we enjoy our social hour before dinner.
Speaking of dinner, I’ve now had three meals here and I must tell you that the chef is amazing, I cannot wait to see what will be served in the week to come. I can guarantee you this however, whatever it is, it will be amazing and there will be vino.
