After class I did some walking around and ended up in Piazza Signoria. I found a nice café with outdoor seating right in the piazza and did some great people watching while enjoying chicken parmigiana.
I felt somewhat overwhelmed in class today as they have been studying things in grammar that I do not know. I spoke to the school and asked about other options for me to keep progressing and they suggested some individual lessons – so I’ll have one next Wednesday.
There was another InterNations event this evening at an art gallery that is part of the Accademia D’Arte and was an exhibition of the results of a Master Class taken by one the InterNations people I met. Barbara had graduated from the Master Class on Wednesday and had two of her paintings shown. She has been focusing on portraits of two women from Africa, who are also her friends, and the work was OK. I got to the facility by bus, 30-minute trip, and headed back fairly soon. When I was looking for the return bus stop, I had walked too far, turned and saw the bus coming, and ran for a half a block while the driver waited for me – how cool.
After my big lunch it was a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner – Swiss on fresh bread – nice. Bed after some Netflix (first time watching in a while). Also had a good talk with a friend in Sonoma – a good day.
