We had a cooking class at 5pm today with our director and everyone on the program. It was held at a little restaurant right next to the place where our classes are. We each got to take turns making a type of eggplant parmigiana and pasta alla norma, which is eggplant in a red sauce with home made pasta. It was so fresh and SO DELICIOUS! Also fun to cook, but I am way too spazzy to deal with vats of hot oil. After the cooking class we walked around and went shopping for a bit. The city is going crazy right now in preparation for the St. Agatha festival that's coming up, with vendors all over the piazze and people bustling everywhere. ALSO, there are incredible sales going on all over the place. I got a skirt today for 20 euros, marked down from I think 69, some cute earrings, and the most insanely adorable stickers I have ever seen in my life. That's all for now!!
