Cara Firenze, Italia,
The past three months contained the most incredible, memorable, and happiest moments of my entire life. I hadn’t known the beauty of a historical city, of Europe, of any other world outside my safe haven of New York until I visited you. I hadn’t expected the adventures you’d have waiting for me when I arrived. Never thought I’d set foot in Paris, France and yet I did. Never heard of the country of Malta, and yet there I was, hopping from town to town and at some moment, underwater, busy scuba diving. Greece had always been a dream to me, a Google image, and yet there I was on the plane landing on this little island called Rhodes and at some moment, wading water by the white picturesque homes aligning the sandy beaches. Even London was all too surreal. These places and countries once only scenes from movies and books have become scenes for my memories, attached with my own personal experiences. But this letter is for you Florence, and all I really wanted to say was this: Grazie mille per tutto. And by extension, Grazie mille NYU Florence per tutto.
