Too busy for words.

Have you checked my giveaway yet? Hurry up, comments close on Friday, June 4th at 8:00 AM- Italian time (GMT+2.)

I am running in circles trying to finish a big project, while at the same time arranging a (not planned) trip back to the States. I do not want to bore you with the details but it has to do with my resident status and my application to citizenship. To make matters worse, I have no "legal" status in Italy yet, which can be a problem on my way back. Ah! The joys of having a Colombian passport! As I find myself "between a rock and a hard place," we are taking an unorthodox solution to the problem. I won't give out any more details, but keep me in your mind as I can use all the good energy available.

Not everything is stress and work in this corner of the world though. Yesterday Italy celebrated "Republic" day. Business, schools and shops were all closed, making the weekend a long one. We took full advantage of it, running a local 6K on Friday and a 10K on Sunday (Fernando came in 3rd from all the men from our little town.) We also took a day trip to Bergamo (città alta) on Monday. We enjoyed the beautiful town, the view, the many available pastries. All in all a fabulous weekend!
