First Deposition!

I did my first deposition yesterday!  It was also the first time that both counsels appeared via video conference and so only the witness was in the room with me.  Imagine if the witness was there of a heinous crime, that would have been a potentially petrifying session for me!  Luckily, the witness wasn’t and the session went so smoothly.  Usually, I’m always apprehensive of video conferencing because the audio quality is incredibly poor Continue reading

Numeroundici restaurant Pisa

Numeroundici located at Via S. Martino, 47, 56125 Pisa PI in Italy

September 7, 2018:   We had the best lunch here in Pisa, Italy!  Sometimes, the best spots really are those that you stumble upon in small cities.  We came across this unassuming cafeteria-style restaurant called Numeroundici when the one that we originally wanted to go to wasn’t open (thanks Google Maps :/). We were hungry from our four-hour train ride and this place was open for Continue reading

September 4 to 7, 2018:  We were so lucky to be able to stay at a BnB which provided daily included breakfast at a local cafe!  The host must have struck a deal with this La Pasticceria Siciliana bakery in order to offer free vouchers every day of our stay.  We got these pink cardboard cards that we exchanged for a free hot beverage and pastry every single day of our stay!  It was a best way to get a hot meal to Continue reading
