If you’ve studied abroad in Florence, Italy, with CCI, you probably…
…could speak un può italiano to the American students you met at clubs.
…did this every minute of every sweaty day when you arrived in August.
…understood that “O” is much, much more than just a letter.
…wanted a ride on a vespa SO BAD.
…went to Italian “movie nights” just to hang out with Tina.
…finally mastered walking on cobblestone with *minimal* tripping.
…got way more homework than you thought you would.
…never took a shower with a temperature above semi-sorta-warm.
…had war flashbacks anytime you see someone selling selfie stick or bouquet of roses.
…never had enough wifi to talk on the phone with your family.
…had been kindly “invited” somewhere by Fabio Corsini.
…obnoxiously yelled andiamo every time you wanted to leave a place.
…had eaten gusta pizza at least twice in one week.
…got way too excited when Netflix came to Italy last October.
…felt like this when you hear people say they are “ready” to go home.
