Things that are going to take some getting used to: lack of space; I have an easy bake oven for an oven - seriously - none of our pans will fit in it and we have a dorm room sized fridge. Things that I am super excited about (besides the culture, learning another language, travel) - the best pizza ever a block away (Lena said she can never eat pizza in the US again); a champagneria a block away; an H & M across the street, a movie theater across the street and are you ready for this . . . an outlet mall about 10 minutes north of us with Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Dolce and Gabbana, Armani, Missoni, Escada, La Perla, Furla, Frette, Bruno Magli, Miss Sixty, and Valentino to name a few. And about five more minutes away from the outlet mall is a thermal bath and spa. Yay!!!!
