Ciao, everybody! I decided to share bits of journal entries, edited to include updated information. All the updates you’ll see will be in italics.

My trip began with a false start yesterday. *By now most of you have already heard this part of the story, thanks to Facebook. I was supposed to leave at 5pm on the 29th and get to Rome by 10:30am today. Instead, I flew out at 12:30pm today and will arrive at 7:05am tomorrow. At least I got to spend the night at home, instead of stuck in an airport somewhere. And, at my mom’s urging, I got a voucher from Delta (which might barely cover the cost of a plane ticket) in compensation for my missed day in Europe. Right now, I’m sitting in the Baltimore airport, waiting for my flight which is finally less than two hours away.
