8 days and counting before I leave.
I spent a good portion of today going over my travel Italian. Today's words are words that I'm familiar with but can't seem to keep in my head. They're aschiutto, bagnata, pulita, puzza, lenzuolo, cuscino, spazzola, spazzolino, sapore, cattivo, and my favorite asciugamano (ah-shuga-mano). I like pronouncing asciugamano. :-)
I had better keep my phrase book handy!
Ciao e ci vediamo!
