Bologna

Friday, March 21, 2008
Jeff and I went to Bologna on Friday. He wanted to go because the frat he is in mentions Bologna and it was too cloudy to go to the beach, so we went to Bologna. It was pretty fun. We walked to the top of the Torre degli Asinelli and that was something like 1,008 steps (504 up, 504 down). The view from the top was amazing! It was a windy day already, but at the top, it was crazy!!! I didn't even want to take my camera out because I was scared it would fly away! After we hiked up and down the tower, we went to Parma where we had an amazing meal at my grandma's house. She made torta fritta which is my favorite food, no doubt. For desert, she made these peaches. But, they aren't peaches. They are two cookies with in the middle chocolate cream and a custard cream. On top, she drizzles a sauce that is reddish-orange in color, hence them being called peaches. They are so good! On Saturday, we hung out in Parma and walked around. It was warm and sunny in the morning, but then it got cloudy and cold in the afternoon but we were still able to have a great day. We went to the Giardino Ducale and took a nap in the sun in the morning, it felt so good to lay out in the sun! Then, in the afternoon, we walked around the city and went shopping, but didn't buy anything unfortunately. Jeff then left this morning but we had a great time and it was so great to see him, I can't wait to see him again!

Io e Jeff siamo andati a Bologna venerdi'. Abbiamo caminato fino in alto alla Torre degli Asinelli e la vista che c'era da la su era stupenda! C'era anche tanto vento e io avevo paura che mi volava via la macchina fotografica. Venerdi' sera, abbiamo mangiato da mia nonna che ci ha fatto la torta fritta e poi di dolce, le pesche. Le pesche sono un tipo di biscotto ripieno con un tipo di sciroppo sopra, be, non so come sono fatte, pero' sono buonissime! Sabato siamo stati a Parma e abbiamo visto un po' la citta'. Abbiamo fatto un pisolo nel Parco Ducale sotto al sole perche' si stava molto bene. Poi, Jeff e' partito oggi. Mi e' dispiactuo molto vederlo andare, pero' sono molto contenta che l'ho visto e non vedo l'ora di vederlo ancora!!
