Courtney and Lynne are ACLE pros and Italy veterans as far as we are concerned. Luckily for us they have been showing us the ropes in camp and around town in San Remo.
Today their leadership pertained most significantly to their knowledge of prime food spots. The experienced duo led us on a gelato tasting expedition across three vendors, patiently instructing us on how to say “I would like a sample taste please” in Italian (“Vorrei un campione di gusto per favore”). Lollipop was the winner.
Tasting the creamy, nutmegy, nutella-y goodness for the first time, we could not stop drooling long enough to pick a winning flavor. Good thing we have six more weeks to give each option a second chance…
Here are a few of our other first impressions from our time in Italy (see photos below).
Teaching English to non speakers is much harder than expected but we are having a blast returning to our youthful days at Summer Camp. Here Perrin and I demonstrate teaching “The Hokey Pokey”. Lynn informed us the proper name in Scotland is “The Hokey Cokey”. We’ll see which name prevails with the children after the summer.
