Chatham Cultural Council Rome Trip
Chatham Cultural Council Rome Trip
(Photos not by me.) 2009 Collective Students' Journal 2/12 It was the first day of our trip to Rome and the first place we went to was the Trevi fountain. I tossed a coin into the fountain, and then had lunch with Lorenzo and Theresa after. Later that day we went to the Pantheon before returning to the hotel for a much needed night of sleep. Today was our first day in Rome. We got there in the morning but we were very tired because of the jet lag. I’ve already been to Rome, but it’s always nice to see Rome again and I don’t think that you can ever say, “I’ve seen everything of Rome” This is a totally different experience since this was the first time in Rome for all of my friends and this made me feel like it was the first time even for me. Today we saw the Pantheon and La Fontana Di Trevi. I’m already sure this is going to be a wonderful experience. 2/13 Awakened 6:30 Am by Jack’s annoying ring tone. Breakfast: bread and sugar coated croissant, hot chocolate, and grapefruit juice spilt on the tablecloth. Bus to Colosseum and Roman Forum, closed due to riot. Go to Arch of Titus. Riot with Soviet Union flags. Environmental protest lighting fire crackers and flags cheering. Helicopter goes up. Via Sacra to old Church: Greek cross. Go to imperial forum with column of Trajan and to forum where Julius Caesar was cremated and hole in ground where Mettius Curtius jumped inside (Rome’s greatest treasure). Basilica of Constantine, Temple of Vesta, Temple of Romulus, Arch of Septimus Severus. So far Rome had been absolutely amazing! From the astounding monuments to the culture to the best pasta on the face of the planet! It’s so different seeing the pictures of Rome to actually standing right in front of these historic sites. The city is so different than Boston as well. I even made a point in making Elizabeth keep the sprite can I bought today, because even that was different. Around the Colosseum today a vendor came up to us and would not leave us alone. Finally he asked if we were German and Elizabeth just replied yes and he finally left us alone. So excited for tomorrow. This morning I went to the doctor with one girl of our group and a chaperone to help them in case that there was a need of any translation and because I had a pain in my esophagus. My Father drove us there that morning; the whole thing took us until mid-day. I found it funny how in this medical clinic for tourists that no one knew English and all of the fill-in forms were only in Italian. 2/14 The first thing that we did today was to go to the Colosseum which was open and no longer on strike. Next, we went to the top of the Palatine hill and then the remains of the Circus Maxiumus. After the Circus Maximus, we ate pizza for lunch again. After lunch we were going to the Villa Borghese on foot because we couldn’t find a bus, but we spotted one in the distance and frantically chased it down. We piled about 25 people into a minivan sized bus and rode it uncomfortably to the museum. Tom and Brandon gave presentations today and after touring the museum, we tried to return to the hotel but got lost for almost an hour, but then finally returned home. Today was some day! My breakfast consisted mostly of espresso. Finally today we got to see the inside of the Colosseum. From there we trekked up the Palatine Hill. The mini-circus there was really cool. After a while of perusing there, we went to find mass feast. We wound up in a pizzeria and got a ton of pizza. While walking back toward the metro station, we were praying that it wouldn’t rain. Luckily it didn’t. Before we knew it, we were back outside of the monastery decorated with the monk bones waiting for bus 116. The Villa Borghese had some amazing artwork. After that we continued back to the hotel, or so we thought. We got lost in God knows where. It made a good story though. Dinner was delicious as usual. 2/15 Today we went to Vatican City and the Pantheon. At the Vatican the Pope was giving a blessing. There were so many people there as well. When the Pope first came out everyone started to cheer. It was a very cultural experience. It was amazing to see how far away some people lived and came to Rome just to see the Pope. After that we went to lunch. We had amazing pasta. I don’t think I can ever eat pasta in America the same as here. Our waiter asked us where we were from. When we said that we were Americans, he was surprised. He said that we didn’t look American which was surprising for us. Then we had gelato which was soooo good. Rugby is now my favorite sport to watch. Lorenzo’s uncle and father invited a bunch of us to the international match between Italy and Ireland. We walked from the Pantheon all the way to the Olympic stadium where the game was being held. I have never seen so many people so tightly packed in my life. Today I also learned how to ask the time and “do you like” in Italian At lunch I had a magnificent panino.
With Australia Day weekend coming up, I thought I'd take the opportunity to share some interesting facts about Australia that I've gathered over the years of living here. These are the things you rarely read about in guide books, or encounter when coming to visit for just a short period. I've collected a bit of a list of these, and today I'll share my five favourites. 1. In the early days of Australia as a nation (after European immigration), people used eucalyptus leaves and gum nuts (basically the seed pod) as toothpaste. They'd grind them up (using just one or two gum nuts together with lots of leaves) in a homemade type of mortar and pestle, along with some water, and make a sort of paste out of it. The bits of gum nuts were for scrubbing (they're very hard) and the eucalyptus, with it's unique freshness, was used for cleaning. It worked really well, as eucalyptus also has antiseptic properties. I don't remember what particular type of eucalyptus it was that they used, so it may not be this particular kind of tree that's in the photo - but it's similar. 2. Australia has the highest incidence of red-green colourblindness in the world. Oddly enough, this seems to come from the Irish ancestry of much of the population, which also gives Australia a large number of redheads. For some reason it seems that many with this particular genetic disposition migrated here, as it's even higher here than in Ireland. I actually saw something quite humourous related to this when I went to Uluru (Ayer's Rock). As we were walking up close to it, I heard an older lady express her shock that the rock had nothing growing on it. Apparently she had always thought it was green, and that it got it's colour from the vegetation. 3. Australians have nice teeth. For a three year period in the late 70's, all Australians had free, unlimited dental care. Apparently there was an abundance of dentists at the time, and the federal government was concerned about unemployment as there wasn't a lot of work for them. They decided to include free dental care in their health care program, and started an advertising campaign. They used a couple of strategies - one was surrounding health - it was something like "Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body", and the other, strangely enough, was about tourism. The campaign was something about how nice smiles will help bring tourists to the country and help bring in money from overseas. I saw one of their old commercials and it was really funny. They showed some of Australia's beautiful scenery - beaches, Uluru, rainforests - and then they had someone smile and say "G'day, Welcome to Australia", with horribly crooked and yellowed teeth. (It was so bad, I'm sure it was faked!) It's been a long while now since dental was free, but nice teeth still seem to be very highly valued. 4. Recently a study was done that revealed that Australians (when compared with people from the US, Japan, Canada, England, Germany and fifteen other countries) have very poor eye-hand coordination. While this is something that has been suspected for many years, it was surprising to realise how low it is (27% worse than the next lowest country in the particular tests that they used). Apparently someone did a similar study about 16 years beforehand and came up with similar results, but the methodology was pretty suspect. This particular study was very rigourous, and it's been difficult for anyone to dispute the results. It's odd the types of stories that catch on, and that people become so passionate about - but it seems that for Aussies, this is one of pride. Australia is very much a sporting country, and so much funding goes into sports. And people are so divided on this. Some people say that this proves that less money should be invested - it's obviously not working anyways. And others suggest that it means more money needs to be invested - but at the lower levels - in grade school and such. Heh - the other day I even saw some politician (I don't remember his name) going on about how it must have something to do with the heat. People are just so slow and tired in the summers, that it decreases their hand-eye coordination. And this is about half of the year that people don't get proper practise. It's weird all the speculation on this one. The other day I saw a comedian interview some American celebrity I had never heard of. He asked this guy what he thought of the fact that Aussies have poor hand-eye coordination. The American answered - "I guess that's why they don't play baseball or proper football." (Heh - such a classic American response...) 5. One of the biggest crazes here over the past few years is this new beer/wine type of drink. See - while Australians are known to be big beer drinkers, it's really the wines that they're good at making. So some guy in the wine industry decided that they needed a way to market the wines to the beer drinking people of Australia. (Seriously - except for some microbrewe
