WHAT!!! April is almost over already?!?!?! How did this happen? I feel like it was only yesterday that I was packing to come to Florence! And now, I can begin to see the ending that I want, so badly, to stay away from! In just a month, my 4th year of school will be over; a month from that, I’ll be flying back to the United States. Oh how time flies.

Spring in Florence has been beautiful. The weather is finally warmer and, with the first real rain of the year, a storm of “puffballs” were sent flying through the air. The balls of pollen looked like snowflakes drifting everywhere: into windows and up the occasional nose. The trees are now in blossom, including the magnolia and almond trees.
With the end of midterms, I went on a road trip to Budapest, Hungry and then down through Croatia. This was such a great trip!
Last weekend, a small group took some very inexpensive flights to Kefalonia, Greece and had a very relaxing weekend on the beach.
And now, it is the last weekend of April and I am headed to a city I am very excited to see. Istanbul.

The last month of school also looks packed, so I may be a bit slow in up-dating you. I have my last school trip, a workshop, and finals.
Wish me luck!
