From Florence to San Remo
Here's some shots from our orientation. A group of the tutors for this summer (top), and our returning tutor/instructors showing us the best way to pass time in the heat. Crazy group, and such a blast.
So, after four days to get adjusted and relax in Florence, I made my way up to the northwest corner of Italy in San Remo. These pictures are from the "top" of the old part of town. The director of our program was kind enough to give us a personal tour one night. The place is AMAZING. I'm sure I've already used that word to the full in describing what I've been seeing here, but I don't think I can say it enough. The girls in the picture with me above were my roommates for our week of orientation. They are from Windsor, Ontario, and we had a great time together. The next shot ( with the group sitting at tables) was our dinner arrangements one night. It was so cool, because this little piazza is tucked up a steep, narrow street, and the houses peer right out into the courtyard adjoining the restaurant. It's like something straight out of a storybook, and absolutely fantastic. And yes, of course the food is great too. :)
