Ciao everybody! I don’t know which obscure reason brought you here, but now your are probably wondering who is it on the other side of the screen. My name is Francesca -make sure you roll your “r”) and I come from Italy. I ended up on the side of the planet, in the West American Coast, in one of the most gorgeous place in the United States- Lake Tahoe. Ski Racing-gave me wings to fly over here, and as a result of that my alarm rings at 6,30 every morning to hit the slopes and go to races. I compete for Sierra Nevada College, where, btw, I am an Economics major and Journalism minor.
On my second year overseas, I am diving deeper into this new culture that everyday still leave me with a smile, a puzzle brain-teaser or just a bunch of Italian swears. I will share all of this with you as tragicomic notes of an Italian Yankee trying to fit in.
