Today was yet another travel day, but less exciting than some of our previous ones. We were sad to leave our great apartment, but also excited to be heading back to Italy. We were out the door by ten, and into our car. The weather has definitely been more like summer, and this morning was no exception. The temperature started out a muggy 28 with no breeze.
The first part of our drive was enjoyable, and we learned about "Capgras Syndrome" through a podcast, which is a very odd, but very horrible condition. If you would like to learn a little more about it, just click on this link. The other subject that we chose was polygamy, which you can learn more about here.
We stopped at a supermarket to pick up some food for lunch, as well as some cold juice to drink. We drove a little further and came across a rest stop to eat at. Unfortunately, all twenty garbage cans were overflowing, and there were no tables, chairs or washrooms to be seen. But it was the best we could find and our juice wouldn't be cold for much longer so we decided to tough it out.
This was our last stop until we got to our new house, which, by the way, is very nice. There are three houses in total on our renter's property, one of which we are staying in. Three generations live in the other two houses, one of them being four stories, and the other between two and three. The one we are in used to be the great grandparents house and it still seems decorated like it was when they lived here. Mom saw that one of the reviews for the place indicated that it was just like visiting your Grandma's house only she had gone away for a while. It is full of old Italian furniture and odd antique pieces (like guns, pipes and knives) from various places. The thing we like most about it is that it has air conditioning!
We plan to use the hot weather to our advantage by trying to find a beach or water park that we can hang out at in the next few days while the temperatures are in the 30 degree range.
