We made it!! the long awaited journey to Italia was just that... long... but that is behind us and now it's time for fun :) I have just a few minutes to send you a quick blog because of limited wifi... part of being lucky enough to be in Italy... below are a couple shots of our students hanging at JFK... what a group! we found 15 more friends after we took this picture. We are now a group of 5 staff and 38 students!
Who doesn't like looking out an airplane window at night? such beautiful sights to see. The flight was smooth and we had Chicken or Pasta.... hey it's all about the food in an Italian Blog...
We arrived in Milan, sleepy and a little sweaty, but deep down under our sticky tshirts we were pumped to get on the big air conditioned bus and drive to our hotel, which was lovely, cool, clean and comfy!
After a nice long rest and showers, we walked to the subway where we rode to the city center. Here was saw the famous and very beautiful Duomo. There were pigeons everywhere! No one got pooped on thankfully... although I'm told that's good luck!
The evening ended with a delicious dinner close by to the city center where we had a choice of different things to eat. I had my favorite pizza con funghi .... yummy. The kids were great and it was really fun seeing them all sit together and talking non stop! Great bunch of kids! Until next time...
OK CIAO!!! that's all for tonight... Goodnight, Karen.
Italian phrase of the day:
Va Bene .... It's Good! OK!
