The rest of our time in London was very good. We spent a lot of time hanging around the penthouse and we saw Les Mis and Wicked. After Wicked we had to go back and pack and clean up, and by the time we went to bed (after 1) we only had a couple hours of sleep. We woke up at 4:45 yesterday and then went to Heathrow and then after many many hours made it to our friend Nico's house in Italy. I have had a wonderful time so far. The home we are in is beautiful, and walking outside looks like something out of National Geographic.
After sleeping in this morning, we had breakfast which consisted of brioche (like a croissant filled with jam), juice and some really delicious cereal. Then we helped Nico out on the vineyard, which was so cool. At one point we decided to lay down on the grass and just soak up the hot sun (according to Nico's sister I've gotten some color already). After a small lunch of bread with oil we went to pick up Ela (nico's sister) from her ballet class. It was very cool sitting in on that since it was all Italian. Then we got our first gelato in Italy. I had chocolate chip, and it was delicious!! Now we are back at home hanging around until dinner which will be pasta and wine.
Tomorrow we're going to a church in Milan, and we actually know the pastor from school since he and his wife lectured!
