    Yep, I'm skipping again. I don't seem to be able to remain on LitNet for long each time I come back! Anyways, I'll be back here by the end of the month, or the beginning of April, hopefully.

    I've just come back from a trip to Trento, in the north of Italy, which has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. Each place in Italy is more beautiful than the next! Trento is a little town surrounded by mountains. It's not far away from Riva del Garda, the largest lake ...

    To figure out why I'm posting this, see the entry below this. Enjoy!

    Month no. 1 (sent at the beginning of October)

    A bella! (Romana dialect for "hi!")

    I was planning to send this on the 5th, that being the day I left and started out on all of this. However, my calendar-reading skills failed me and I didn't realize what day it was. Then I decided to write on the 6th, that being the day I arrived in Italy. I ended up going ...
