After a long time i have finally decided to resume writing on the danteinitaly blog.
I will try and write a new blog post every week on sunday because i am really busy with school and homework during the week...
So i hope to talk to you all soon and update you on what has happend in these two year since the last time i wrote a post on this blog.
Yesterday my school had our end-of-the-year show. This year we did it earlier than in other years. This year for us fifth graders it was very special because it was our last few days of elementary school. We also had different dances of the four elements--wind, earth, fire and water. My class did the fire dance. We also did this play based on a movie called "la gabianella e il gatto (the seagull and the cat). The theme is about recylcing. We'll do the show again on Tuesday night at Bar Zepieri where they have a field and lots of seats for spectators. I'll ask my parents to take a video of part of it :). Ciao.
This Easter vacation we went to Budapest, Hungary. When we arrived there we took a taxi to our five-star hotel, the Grand Corinthia. In that hotel there was everything--a t.v. with English channels, free wireless internet (we brought our laptop). It was cool. I would have been happy to stay the whole trip in the hotel! We managed to go out and visit some historic sites. I remember one night we went on a romantic boat cruise on the Danube, which divides Buda from Pest.
And then, another favorite thing we went to was the famous thermal spas of Budapest. In the spa center there was an outdoor pool with water from an underground spring, and then inside there were lots of pools from 20-60 degrees fahrenheit, and even some saunas that my Dad really liked.
One of the negative things was the language. The Hungarian language that they spoke was impossible to understand! It doesn't derive from Latin, so Italian didn't help me. If they didn't speak English, we couldn't communicate in any way. This was hard for us at the beginning, even though my mom had a phrase book.
Sorry that I haven't posted anything because my stupid computer didn't work! I was stuck with no computer because it broke. I wanted to repair it but it wasn't possible so, SORRY! So now I'm using my moms'. More to follow. Now I have to go to tutoring and get my TONS of homework done. See you later!
