On the Wall in Siena

So I come home a week from today so this will be my last post untill I get home. I am so excited to come home. But it is still sad to leave Italy. On Monday I leave Siena and go to Venice! I am so excited that I am going there It is amazing that I have had the oppurtunity to go to so many places here. I really am gratefull for this oppurtunity I have had. Well I just wanted to post a few last photos of Italy and sign off till I get home.

Someone pulled out an apple in Volterra...I couldnt resist taking this pic!
What some twhilight fans have written in Volterra My Favorite!Vampire sign
So last week I went to Volterra, and anyone who has read twilight might be freaking out. The trip was a lot of fun. I even asked the Italian humanities teacher if there was a St. Marcus in Volterra and he said "yes, it’s an old legend but he was the one who got rid of the vampires." That answer got the rest of the group excited. Mind you that half of the twenty four girls on this trip has read twilight so it was pretty funny. The rest of the day was spent vampire hunting. I went down many dark allies on my endeavor but was only left to find graffiti from other twilight fans. Plus, it started to rain, and I didnt have an umbrella because it was clear blue skies in Siena when we left so I had to end my hunt. lol.

Halloween was spent at the church eating chili, playing games and having fun. The missionary's dressed up and the ward members seam to have a lot of fun. We wrapped mummies, bobbed for apples and went trick-or-treating. American candy (Starburts, war heads, caramel apple pops, and pop rocks) were all handed out. My favorite part was dinner. We managed to have baked potatoes with a white cheese sauce and chili. It was so good and reminded me of home. I loved it.

Happy Halloween!
