One of my student invited me to her home and introduced me to her family. She has two houses, both were very nice. She lives on a hill so it’s very cold. Inside her house was freezing so I slept with five blankets over me. During the summer, I was told it gets really cool. Her uncle came to visit from Italy and I got to meet him and his wife.
This is the view of the lake and from the distant town is Shalice.
One of her house has a wood stove and I took pleasure sitting near to it.
This is Trahana, made with flour, bread and excessive amount of butter. It tasted bland, like oatmeal or porridge. This was what I had for breakfast.
