My, how time flies. Now that it’s March, my Fulbright grant is officially halfway over! Can you believe it?!
That realization has me working frantically now, but I wanted to update you all a bit more on the month of February, since I did some pretty cool stuff:
In the first weekend of February, Bologna had its annual Art White Night, a chance for the citizens to see Bologna’s museums for free until midnight.
After returning from Catania, I spent a weekend in Rome February 10 and 11 for our mid-year meeting, where we talked about the progress of our work and got some more practical information about the grant. We spent the day at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, the FAO, where we got to learn about modern international food issues. While in Rome, I also got to witness one of the city’s first snow storms in 25 years (the first was a few weeks before.)
On February 15, I got the chance to go to Milan for an alumni interview for law school. This was the first time I’d ever seen the city, so once the interview was over I contacted a friend living there and we went to get lunch so he could show me around a bit.
I’m currently at a conference in Brussels, so be on the lookout for some posts about this incredible place and all the awesome people I’ve met and things I’ve learned. But finally, a belated end-of-February shoutout to Austin, since our anniversary was the last day of the month. Four years have flown by!
Happy March everyone.
