Hello everybody.. today I want to try to write the first post in english. So today is november 10th and i’m going to write something of yesterday. First rule for all reader: if you’ll find out some mistake, you HAVE TO tell me.
Ok i’m ready. Yesterday I woke up at 7 o’clock in the morning for call my family. They were all togheter for receive my videocalling. After one hour and half and a lot of chats, Tim and me watched the first half of Blow (amazing movie about one poor guy and his business about cocaine).After, I decided with Aline to visit a ship of the Marine of the ’40 or something like this. We arrived in front of the ship at 3.30 in the afternoon. We stayed inside the shep for only 1 hour and a half because they closed at 5 o’clock. So we bought a student ticket (cheeper than the normal one) and we entered.
The first guy inside the ship explained to us how we could learn something about the navy. The normal day on this famous ship called “Midway”. The name of the museum is “USS Midway Museum” and down you can find the link of the official site:
Anyway, we followed a planned way, where you had to wear a headphone and in the same time you had to look (for example) several rooms where the navies slept and listen the explanation. I took a lot of photos. Here are the best in almost fifty total photos:
After this quick lesson I can explaine what is the difference between navies and marines. For the people that doesn’t know the difference, the navies are the sea’s military and the marines are a part of the navies that can also go on the land. Never mind, it was very very interesting.
After that, we went to the Hooka bar, because Aline wanted to smoke but we found the shop close. It open at 7 o’clock so we decided to go to the “il vantaggio” place for the students like me, situated in Little Italy. Aline has a friend in this place and we thought that it was possible enjoy there.
Before go there, we went to buy some beer and some chips for the evening (total cost for 6 bottle if beer and 2 packs of chips: 10.16 box…. I have to give back Aline 5box…azz… I can’t, i’m so poor… never mind). We entered and I had never seen anywhere a place like this. It was something like an hotel but with 1 kitchen shared for all the floor. There was, I think so, three floors. Anyway, Aline and me waited in the first floor’s kitchen, for one hour while the people were cooking. We were drunk a lot of beer while the people were arrived and set. At the 8.30 in the evening, the kitchen was full of people. I met and knew a lot new people very iteresting and two of these were from south Switzerland than so they could speak Italian. Oh guys, the first time that I spoke seriously my language with someone on this 2 months. I was excited and very relaxed. Anyway, I was a little bit drunk and I enjoyed so much. We came back at home at 1 o’clock. I begin to find right people to go out in the evening. I hope. Oh, I forget to say that the “Italian Switzerland” people left this night so for me i won’t be a problem (I mean learn the language).
Ok guys that’s all. I think we’ll meet soon. I love you all.
