I miei amici meravigliosi
In 1997 or 1998, when I started studying Italian in the evenings at the University of Washington in Seattle, I met a great group of people who became my friends. We all were entranced by Italy and the Italian language. Our “class” of ten continued to meet for several years though it began to focus on eating Italian food rather than studying. The group still gets together and always includes me in their email event planning even though I live on the other side of the US. My time in Seattle allowed me to join seven of them for a tour of a chocolate factory and dinner in an pizzeria. It was wonderful to see them and to catch up. Grazie tutti!
