Buon Giorno friends and family!

Welcome to "Blogging from the Boot", Where you can read all about my adventures spent in Italy. I will be attending the International Culinary Institute for Foreigners in beautiful Costigliole d'Asti. Along the way I will be cooking, eating, learning, and all around submerging myself in the rich and delicious culture of Italy. Mangia Mangia!

day off

Yesterday we had a day off and I spent it with the other cook at La Ghinghetta, Sabrina, and her family and friends.

We went to the beach at 10 am and stayed until 5 pm! We had a leisurely lunch and then layed on the beach a little bit more (Don't worry, I am wearing sunscreen!) And then They picked me back up at around 8 to walk around the Girotonno fair that is now in Portoscuso this weekend. It is similar to the one in Carloforte but is a little more "rustic". We ate fantastic fair food and I really got a chance to practice my Italian all day long. There was, however a few awkward silences in the mix, but oh well.

I worked this morning/afternoon and got off around 4. Tried to go to the beach but only spent about 20 minutes as it was really really windy. So, until then I might just take a nap, read a book or something. Ciao everyone!!

  1. Sounds awesome! It is good that you get some practice on your Italian (and that you are wearing sunscreen) :) Love you lots and miss you. Suppose to feel like 105 outside today! Uch is NOT gonna like that. Neither am I!
