There’s an indescribable taste difference when you get a pizza margherita from touristy place and from a local shop. The atmosphere is much more welcoming even though it isn’t as nice. There’s just something about it. Maybe it’s the older art pieces or the architecture, or maybe it’s the worn table cloths. Then there’s the waiters and the people who work in the small shop. They are much friendlier and care about you, to the point where it’s no longer serving a customer, it’s welcoming a family member.
Being abroad in Rome, has showed me a different take on the world; a world not seen through an American’s eyes. It wasn’t just an Italian take on the world, it was a multicultural view of the world. While in Italy, I met and lived with people from completely different cultures -- being immersed in it was overwhelming and exciting at the same time! It’s definitely something that Morgantown could never give me and I would definitely recommend to anyone. Go out there and see the world!
