Carota is from Italy and a foreign exchange student at Nazereth College in Rochester, NY, and her home school THE University Gabriele D'Annunzio in Pescura, Italy. Her boyfriend came to visit on a budget and the two didn't want to pay the money for an airport hotel that seemed to have inflated their prices. They have been eating from the only open place at the airport, a donut shop. They plan on sleeping at the airport until the storm passes and air travel resumes. AFP PHOTO/Paul J.
