On another note, today is December 8th. It is the day Buddha reached enlightenment and ironically also Immaculata Concezione (immaculate conception) of Mary. Immaculate because it is believed that Mary was born without original sin. Anyway, it was a holiday today which means shopping for all! The city center was packed today and all the piazzas were full of cool handmade crafts, foods and goods.
Italian word of the day: stanco - tired
