Last Hoorah in Florence
by Student, Keara S. & Elena D.

The fact that we are leaving in less than a week is sadly starting to sink in and it stinks.  We don’t want to go home at all.  It feels like Florence is our real home and going back to the US would be the trip.  Keara has been finishing up her final art project while Elena does the same in Italian class.  At the start of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, having to worry about the final projects seemed so far off and now we’re in the midst of rushing to finish on time.

We were really excited because we weren’t expecting to go. We didn’t know what we were walking into, but it definitely didn’t disappoint.  It was not only the music and the lights that mesmerized us, but the overall amount of energy surging through the room was enough to light Times Square.  It was a great end to our final full week in Firenze.
