"But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east and Juliet is the sun! It is my lady: O, it is my love!"
September 25, 2011 Day 8 Verona ,Italia.
Today was all about William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. We travelled to Verona. Oh Verona! The city of love. We visited the Casa di Giulietta (Juliet's house). I stood on Juliet's balcony and pictured Romeo at the bottom whispering sweet nothings to me in the night.
As we were touring Juliet's house we stumbled upon a mailbox. It seemed like a perfect time to mail a letter. Before I left for Italy my family made me a card. Everyone signed it....my Mom, Eric Bell, Sarahbeth, Levi, Jeremy, Justin, Harmony Behr, Aaron, Mae-Mae and Jessi Bean. It made me feel so special. I decided to send it as a love letter to Juliet. After all of these years she showed us what true love was. I wanted to share a bit of my love as well.

So, I know that today was all about Romeo and Juliet and the love that they shared. But, as I was out and about this afternoon, I found this lady. I have been in Europe for about a week now and I have heard a variety of foreign languages. I have heard French, German, Japanese and of course Italian. I thought this picture was funny. Prior to this woman posing for a photo that her husband was taking of her, she was speaking German. So, it just goes to show you that no matter where you go, there is one universal language!
