So yea, i have been im Milan all this past week, but now i am leaving and heading south near Rome...in about an hour.
The week was good...especially when compared to last week. The camp was located in a public school in the middle of the city, close to Parc Sempoinne, a huge centrally located park. My host family lived a bit far from the school, a 20 min walk to the outskirts of the city, while the rest of the tutors all live within one blocks walking distance of the school...Alex lives accross the street. But they gave me a bike to use to get into town, and it was nice because their place was is big and (most importantly) has AC. This had been one of the hottest weeks of the summer, I mean really hot--and when you are chasing kids around all day you feel it.
My arm is healing nicely, if not slowly, I got bored and took off the cast yesterday and it feels OK, i still cant extend it fully, but i just couldnt stand the heat of it anymore. Beter that i have a sore elbow than I broil my arm in plaster...seriously, i may as well have sprinkeled some garlic and cayanne pepper on it because it was getting well done. I just have it in a compression wrap now
Good news! I am finally heading south. After pestering them for a month, and having the director at a camp outside of Rome (one i worked with in 2008) pester them for three weeks, ACLE has finally transfered me out of Milan (Hallejulah!). God i was getting tired of this city. I mean, it was nice to spend some time downtown (usually i am in the burbs), but still, i need a change...bad.
So thats good. I taught at this camp in 2008. It is a sleep-away camp in the mountains located in a three star hotel with a pool, mtn biking, and horseback riding (dont worry ma, i wont do the mountain biking...at least not until the end of the week...) and breathtaking mountain scenery. Theres also a nice little town center where we can go when we are off duty...ill update more about pescasseroli when we arrive (hopefully they will have wifi, keep your fingers crossed).
Lets see, what alse did i do this week.....oh, my final show yesterday was great (even if the execution wasnt that awesome. The kids couldnt agree on one thing, so i wrote a play that combined the works of Bram Stoker, Joss Wheaton, Stephanie Meyers, Michael Jackson, and Sir Aurthor Conan Doyle. It was great, but i had no access to a computer or photo copier, so i have no script to take with me...sad this play will be lost...just like my "Simpsons trapped in the matrix" script from two years ago...another gem lost to time...
Anyway, that all i have to say for now...ive got a lot of travel today... two metros, a 4 hour train, another train, and two 2 hour busses...then a car ride...i better get packed...
