Trying Times

Hot water or lack thereof. So I decide to shower (Sunday) and there’s no hot water. I try pushing various buttons on what I think is the hot water heater and nothing helps. After much consternation and advice from J. I decide to boil water and guess what-no gas on the stove. Help! I call Mr.Z, no answer. I work up my courage and knock on the neighbor’s door and he looks at me blankly, doesn’t speak and says “no” when I ask for help. Granted my Italian isn’t stellar, but I don’t think he was Italian either and didn’t want to get involved. Finally at the 3rd door that I knock on I found help in Alessandro. Thank God-I was not looking forward to a cold shower and all the food I had needed to be cooked on the stove. Problem solved for now.

I have to say that I haven’t posted sooner because finding internet service has been as easy as I had hoped. When I did finally find a caffe near the school, their internet service was out! I think I’ll be able to come here daily and keep up to date on what’s happening.
