My first week abroad has been amazing and exhausting. I am finally completely over jet-lag and I am starting to become familiar with the area surrounding my apartment. I have spent this week mostly exploring the town and trying to catch up on sleep. Friday night we went to the Ballet at the theater here in Orvieto. The performance was Swan Lake. Yesterday I got to do a little some sketching and painting. Tomorrow we will start our regular classes. Next Friday we have our first field trip to Rome. I also have an Italian cooking class next Saturday.
I have included some pictures of Orvieto so you can get an idea of where I'm living. These are all picture from the town on top of the hill where I am living and going to school. I have yet to explore any of the town at the base of the hill which can be seen in a couple of the pictures.
