It has been three days since I got to my host family's house. They have been exceptionally nice and considerate. The parents who took me in have three children: Alessandra,19, Francesco,4, and Chiara,3. They gave me Alessandra's room for the two weeks that I am here, and I am eternally grateful.
Today was my first day working at the camp, and I can honestly say that it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The children were respectful, but it wasn't easy communicating and they were easily bored. The camp theme is Arthur and Friends, so the tutors split up there classes into four groups, Archers, Lords & Ladies, Knights, and Dragons. The groups from each class came together and created banners, battle standards, and flags. It was really cool. The best part was when we got the entire camp together for a tournament on who had the best artwork.
For the past couple of days I had to rely on the host family's computer because they didn't have wi-fi. Today, after Rays superior guidance,I set up their wi-fi, which they did indeed have but had no idea how to set it up. The first thing I did was contact Ray through the iPad program called FaceTime. Now, I am am able connect to the rest of the world again!!
