come rain or shine.

The best way to describe how I felt about today was,
I didn't want to be anywhere else.
I wouldn't even trade it for a beach and a mojito ... and it's raining, hailing, and chilly here.
Earlier today I taught another lesson on pronunciation.
The professor who is hiring me because he can't speak perfect english cracks me up.
Seriously if you are living in a foreign country - teach english.
You may develop the worlds best self esteem.
They both hang on every word.
I feel like a genius.
"oooo ... so that's how it is said!"
i'm all, why yes, that is how it is said.  
i know something internet.  i really do.
and that something is how to pronounce "think" and "thought"
...
Then I rode off on my bike and it started to pour buckets.
I stopped, had lunch and hot tea to warm up, until it passed.
then JB took me to a tea room overlooking marktplatz.
then off to the market we went.
where we found the prettiest heirloom tomatoes that will be devoured tonight (:
So it was a good day.
{sorry for the diary style post.  but I wanted to record it}
annnnd of course I took some photos!
in love with this paint job. so fun.
free zucchini ... don't mind if i do.
...
Hope you're all having a sweet day, wherever you may be. 
 come rain or shine.

PS:
I'm over at Life of a Scott talking about Rome and  at gadding gal talking about the almafi coast!  
i know. i'm italy obsessed.

  8. Love that you're teaching English. That's what I used to do in Brazil. Can't do that now though...

    I agree with a lady from above said... it's hard reading your blog and not getting jealous! When you stop by one day in Cali, I'll hire you to teach me how to take such great pics, how about that? :)

  14. I taught English before, too, Sarah. It definitely is a hilarious experience. Mine was in Thailand for a bit. The kids are boisterous and the language barrier ends up being completely irrelevant once you get comfortable with your class. Amazing experience :)
