My sister seems to think that my friendliness gets me into trouble, and after today, I agree with her:) While traveling on the train to Rome, a guy from Chile sat next to us. He happened to be a wine consultant, and spoke Spanish.. two things I love! So, we started conversing in Spanish about wine and life, and then the conversation turned to him saying how he was a "naughty" boy... this made me pause and realize that I had gotten both myself and my sister into a situation! He continued to tell me why he was naughty and how he needed a good teacher who was a beautiful 29 year old woman, like myself to change him around. All I can say is that I wanted to RUN from the train, and we tried to get out as quickly as possible, but he followed us to our hostel and luckily for my sister and I, was placed in another room where he proceeded to make a reputation for himself of scaring all of the gals in the hostel:) Despite all of this, I didn't learn my lesson and helped him translate documents for his company.
My sister and I decided to explore Roma and headed to one of the parks to sit down, read, journal, etc. As I was slowly making my way down one of the paths enjoying the lighting, the trees, and the flowers around me, a man stopped me and asked me in Italian for the time. I told him in Spanish, which furthered the conversation to where I was from, what I was doing, and where I was going out for the night. He then offered to take my sister and I out on his motorbike and show us the town.
Being told that you are bella really has no meaning when it comes from someone who does not know you, however, from a person that knows you inside and out, it means that the inner beauty is what shines out of that compliment.
