Day 6 – I Have Been Abroad All Year! (1/1/08) January 13, 2008

Auguri! Buon Anno!

Today I hung out with Kedar. We turned in our ski/snowboard equipment in right after breakfast and hit the town. I had explored most of it with Elisabetta Sofia yesterday. Kedar and I skipped lunch on the slopes in favor a local joint in the center. It was nice to be snow free (meaning not even lunch on the slope) and chill for a day.

In order to pack everything into one carry-on and a backpack I only brought one week’s worth of clothes. I had to do laundry in order to have some clean undies for next week. I found a laundromat in the town. It was expensive! €5 for washing, €4 for drying and €1 for detergent.

Later that day we caught up with the rest of the crew. Had a couple drinks with some of the Italians. The town set off fireworks while we were enjoying happy hour.

Then Giuseppe, Kedar and I broke off to have a “typical” dinner. It was a nice restaurant what served the traditional food of the region. The dishes were excellent. They involved a lot of deer meat.

Back at the hotel we all hung out in the lounge for our last evening together. Giuseppe helped Kedar and I book our rooms for Venice and Rome (we switched our plans in order to be in Rome over the weekend with the folks we just met). G even did a little negotiating on the rate saving us a couple euros a night in Rome.

We all say our goodbye-for-now’s and head to bed. Kedar and I plan on breaking out early tomorrow on the first bus to Trento.

Ski trip was great. Now it’s off to see more of Italy. 🙂
