It is so nice to be home. My husband and my family was waiting at the airport, my puppy was happy to see me, and my wonderful coworkers sent me some flowers with their condolences for my loss. What a kind and thoughtful thing to do. Thank you so much, gals! You are the best.

This is where my journey in Italy ended - the beautiful Venice, Italy.

We had a busy day. First we went on an Alpinestars company tour.

There wasn't much happening in the past few days. I mostly did homework and studied, and I didn't get to leave the campus much. But tonight I decided to share some of the campus life with you.

While the sad news dampened my mood, it did not prevent me from seeking comfort in the beauty that was all around me. A few of us decided to take a walk around Asolo. Here are some of the sights.
Me with Mike and Lauren in front of Elanore Duse's home.
These streets are so narrow, and yet they are two-way. They also share the space with pedestrians and bicyclists.
I adore their shops. Small but very tasteful.
And then there are the fountains (that come from Roman aqueducts)..
Gelato in Italy is so delicious. I got mine from Francesco, a very pleasant gelato shop owner.
I also had the best cappuccino in my life.
We also learned a new lesson. When you want latte in Italy, make sure you ask for cafe latte, otherwise you will get milk. Poor Lauren!
Megan (who took a lot of pics of me - sweetest girl in the world), Lauren (with her milk), Mike and I enjoying our drinks. Megan and I also shared Caprese salad (yum!)
We were later joined by our instructor for dinner. I had polenta with cheese. It was actually quite light and satisfying.
And then Megan and I shared amaretto mousse with pineapple for dessert.
Despite all the sadness I was feeling, I was happy to be in the company of good people in a beautiful surrounding (eating most delicious food).
