If you do take a look at that link, you'll notice a new comment at the end of the post. From Lauren herself. The legend finally found us. Apparently she is now in grad school at USC and is preparing to embark on a study abroad program to Italy for Maymester (whatever the hell that is). She's even started a blog to track her journeys, and she wanted to make sure we all saw it.
So make sure to get over to Cocky Hospitality to follow Lauren's adventures through Italy.
