My favorite photo of the #gustolabosaka2018 tour of Sakai city and its knife industry. @bazesblades shared his expertise with us and took us to Tadashi Enami’s forgery for an unforgettable hands on experience.
Today at my internship, I helped write a paragraph about who Mediterranea is and how they are sustainable. I also learned about taking seeds from vegetables and how they can use them in their project. I also made friends with Lidia, the designer’s, dog #gustolabinstitute#2018studyabroad#gustolabinternship
Yesterday was an amazing day at Mediterreanea! On Mondays I’m able to stay longer than usual so I can attend their Italian class. I learned about comparatives. Neco also came to visit the project. He is a designer and is helping me with the design aspect of my project. It was an amazing experience to work with someone who designs but also cares for others. Love working on this project! #gustolabinstitute#2018studyabroad
This is the kind of before and after picture you can really be proud of. Hard to go to Naples and not get pizza, lucky for me Naples (and all of Italy really) is very aware of gluten intolerance and has done a lot in the past few years to include everyone in their incredible food culture. Thanks Italy #gustolabinstitute#fernandez_laura#summerinternshipabroad
Strawberry gelato being made in the ice cream machine at ICE cRome.
This summer I have the opportunity to intern for a month with Vale la Pena Brewery that is making beer from bakery leftovers! Food waste is a huge and growing problem, but companies like this one creating circular economies are doing their part to reduce waste and increase awareness #gustolabinstitute#fernandez_laura#summerinternshipabroad
Today me and another architect spent the day making all of the floor so of the model which included tracing sketching and a lot of cutting. I also got my desk its the one with the elmers glue on it not too bad #sdgsforallmajors#lundstruml#gustolabinstitute
Continuing on with my journals I had my first day at my architecture internship with Studio OSA yesturday. They are really awesome people and they won a competition to design a building in the area so they brought me on to help complete this project and I couldn’t be more excited! #sdgsforallmajors#lundstruml#gustolabinstitute
The last day of school we went to a fancy dinner as a group and tried all of these sustainable foods and said goodbye to a lot of close friends that I got to know over the 4 weeks we spent everyday together it was a lot of fun! #sdgsforallmajors#lundstruml#gustolabinstitute
Thursday was spent finding menus that had sustainable aspects that I could use for my final project. I also bought a pizza with sausage which I now realize was completely against the goal of that assignment, live and learn #sdgsforallmajors#lundstruml#gustolabinstitute
Wednesday was an awesome day we started the day going to this massive market in Termini that had stands of all sorts of sustainable foods and we got these types of mini sandwiches that were like the original hot pockets of I had to describe them. After that i got 2 cones of gelato because the first one broke, and in the evening we went to a beer tasting at a microbrew which was great they also had some pretty good burgers #sdgsforallmajors#lundstruml#gustolabinstitute
Tuesday was sort of the beginning of the end as we spent the day prepping for final projects and things of that nature. We did get to try this pizza place really close to my apartment which was awesome #sdgsforallmajors#lundstruml#gustolabinstitute
Catching up on last week, Monday I went and explored running trails in Rome and found this really cool park with a little creek running through it. And to start the week Wes made a literal bucket of Carbonara #sdgsforallmajors#lundstruml#gustolabinstitute
The dessert plate we got at our farewell dinner last night. One of the flavors featured hazelnut, a nut that is in many Italian food products such as hazelnut chocolate spread and gelato. I personally preferred the lemon one, but both were very pretty and tasty.
As I anticipate the arrival of my ride to the airport from San Cositomato, I have time to reflect on this past journey that I embarked on a month ago There were many highs, like meeting a new bffl named GAIA ♀️ and all my gustolab goobers or experiencing some of the best food of my life or seeing a bestie after more than a year 🤩(just a few examples) and there was really only one low, pretty much the fact that there is no gah dam AC in this country I leave this eternal city with a bittersweet feeling, knowing that this was a once in a lifetime experience...YOLO...but also ecstatic to be going back to the motherland...AMERICAAA!!! Here is a little picture for all you pesto_peyto true fans out there to enjoy! This may or may not be the last post, still deciding if I should keep her alive, but in the meantime patriotic_peyto OUT #foodstudies#studyabroad#gustolabinstitute#gaiaisgod#theycallmepestopeyto#ohcomeon#samilovessalad#lizloverugby#shanndawg#reemisfromlebanon#ererer
This lil sandwich is made out of pizza dough and filled with zucchini and cheese! Amazing little market at termani station!
@pesto_peyto and I went to this raw bar that was absolutely fantastic & all vegan! We finally got to try it after Gaia had brought us there this at the beginning of our journey!
Farewell dinner was AMAZING! This restaurant is non profit and helps immigrants and refugees. Also it’s fantastic, amazing last dinner in Italy!
One last gelato for Italy! I got biscotti delle Nonna which was recommended by the one and only Gaia & it was amazing. Sad to say this is the last one, till next time Italy
My last lunch in Rome had to be with my loml....this sandwich🥪!! No, but for real I’ll miss these awesome sandwiches and seeing this dude on the regular🤩 He may know my order by heart, and I will never know his name, but it was def LOVE AT FIRST BITE Wish you the best of luck in Spain panini_peyto OUT #ryanp#foodstudies#gustolabinstitute#studyabroad#sdgsforallmajors
On Wednesday we took a class trip to a cute little market located inside the Termini train station. It was really cool to visit because I never knew there was a whole market attached to the train station. There we got to see a variety of vendors, all of which got their ingredients locally and made fresh foods that celebrate other regions. #williamss#foodstudies#studyabroad#sdgsforallmajors#gustolabinstitute
