which one, which one should i choose

2 Jul

HEY

Guess where I am right now? Sitting in the apartment in Bellagio, looking kind of obliquely out over the lake, hair a mess and still in my pajamas. I feel awesome.

Why? you ask?

BECAUSE I AM LEAVING FOR FRANCE IN ONE DAY.
We’ll be leaving early, since we have to drive up to Nice and take a short flight to Paris. Then I get to lead my family round the city for a day, and then I will be abandoned at the doorstep of L’Academie De Paris. Which, in case you didn’t get the hint, is going to be magnificent.
But I digress.

I have been writing blog posts on my little betrodden iPod, but unfortunately there is no Wi-Fi so I cannot post them for a while. I will find wi-fi, mark my words. It’s out there somewhere. So if suddenly a huge amount of posts are unloaded upon this blog, you’ll know why.

Back to Bellagio: it is really, really nice. Kind of touristy (every day, you hear German, English, French, different dialects of Italian…) but rather quaint and charming. It has a lot of stairs. We are staying in an apartment that is mainly above the town. Every morning, we must get down to the town, via said stairs. Yeah. Not fun, but it keeps me from gaining three million pounds from gratuitous gelato-eating.

Jeez, I can’t think straight ‘cos of sudden Paris excitement. I will either attempt to or will write soon. Thanks for reading.

YAY

and the house on the top of the hill

Well, today was rather lovely, really, despite spending a few hours aimlessly driving around and nearly getting killed by those crazy Italian drivers. Went to Bergamot (which was full of Gothic architecture, early Gothic) and messed around for a bit; went to San Pellegrino and looked for a nonexistent spa. Dang!
I did not accomplish much today. I am going to write tomorrow and the next day, and then PPAAAARRRIIIIIISS! WOO YAY.

See y’alls.
