After a day of miming English words to children, ACLE tutors rely on de-stressing in Italy’s natural havens. Last week Courtney, Lynne and I were together in Genzano — about 40 minutes from Rome — and the beautiful Lake Nemi was a short walk away from the school. In our visits after camp our curly grey-haired director Claudia reminded us that you can swim in an bra and underwear at any age while fellow tutor Josh sent us all (except Patrick, who was frantically searching for his lost 57 euro hat) on a rescue hunt after he decided to swim across the 2km lake without mentioning his intention to anyone. Claudia led the search in her white undergarments until we found the him striding along the road, shirtless and shoeless in true Profit-style.
- “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
