Ciao! For those of you who don’t know, this is your intern, Tyne. I post on Facebook and Twitter and this blog about all things Italian, and this semester I just so happen to be studying abroad in Rome! For the next couple of months, I’ll be keeping you up-to-date on all of my Italian adventures, from the food to the traveling to the actual learning of the Italian language.
I’ve been here for less than a week and am still getting settled into my new apartment. For now though, here’s a taste of what is to come!
Here’s what I get to see every day when I look out of my apartment.
The first hearty meal that I had in Rome: rigatoni alla cengo.
Walking through Rome at night.
And I’ll leave you with a fun fact: Did you know that it’s illegal to hail a taxi in Rome? You either have to call the number of a cab company or wait by a taxi stop. On the other hand, sometimes if you don’t hail the bus, it won’t stop for you.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for me while I’m in Rome! Foods I should try? Places I should visit? Ciao for now!
