Nightlife and Pastries-

Some miscellaneous but fun pictures of our time so far here.
Nightlife in Italy happens mainly around the weekend, but we've found that Wednesday (hump day) is quite the happening time as well. We basically take a walk into the city every night- the weather's perfect, and we don't have to walk too far from our apartment to hit some excitement.

Teatro Massimo: A pretty opulent theater that hosts operas, ballets, and symphonies. Prices are steep- maybe we'll try getting a student discount here... currently playing is an opera by mozart.
Here we are on one of our nightly walks. We decided to try Spinnato's, a famous patisserie and bakery of Palermo, the Finale's of Boston if you will. We heard their tiramisu and cannolis were not to be missed so we split them between all of us. Cannoli = A (sickenly sweet ricotta filling, mmm), Tiramisu = C (too bitter, too sour (is this what the real thing is like?) didn't enjoy it at all)

Our first Italian cappucino! Every morning.. on our 1 hour walk to work (we like trekking it, since we're such an ambitiously fit bunch) we pass by this "sweet old man" according to Dan who first discovered his pastry shop. He made friends with the owner and we stop by almost everyday on our walk to work. Today we tried cappucinos for the first time! I really enjoyed it and had a ricotta conetta (croissant) as well. Sugaroverloaddddd...

With our cappucinos and conettas, by 8:30 in the morning, it's already getting pretty hot in Palermo.A little treat of a picture- we got bored on our way to an English conversation dinner gathering, so we stopped in a pretty little park. We started talking about asian squatting, and Xiao taught us the "right way" to do it (she's got the most compact, perfect technique). This was mainly a rite of passage for Dan, but I had to relearn how to balance for the perfect asian squat. Basically we looked ridiculous for 20 minutes squatting up and down. It was great, I love summer days.

Jess! I miss you! I looooooove cappuccino (but hate spelling it). You'll have to drink an extra for me. Italy sounds super awesome so far! Keep up the posts!
