The visit to Trojas

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 Trahana, made with flour, bread and excessive amount of butter. It tasted bland, like oatmeal or porridge. This was what I had for breakfast.
