Day 89–Ponte

It is Monday and I asked the moms on the group chat for Annie’s class, “Ci sono lezioni? [Are there classes today?”]They replied, “Non, c’e ponte.” What does that mean??
   Tomorrow, Tuesday, is a holiday, Republic Day. Well, whenever Italians have a national holiday on a Tuesday or a Thursday, they take Monday or Friday off too! They call those days “Ponte,” meaning “bridge.” So, those moms wrote me, “No, there’s a bridge!”
   I LOVE Italy!
