Monday we had orientation at SAA, my university for the next 9 weeks! At the orientation we were able to ask the USAC advisors questions about the city, traveling and the culture. We took the metro for the first time and we are only about a 5 minute Metro ride from the school, which is great! After the orientation me and Nicole had our first day of class, Contemporary art 1945-Present. Our teacher is a beautiful Italian woman who speaks very slow English but she knows her art! We talked about Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh and Boccioni. It’s an interesting class. This class is only on Mondays and Wednesdays which is great for making traveling plans.
Side note: We booked our first trip! Me, my roommates and a group of students are going to Venice for the weekend! I couldn’t be more excited to ride gondolas and see the grand canal and be by the water!
