Well only one day of work left! Today has been a long one and it is only 1:30 here. This morning Joe and I got up at 5 to get to the train station to catch a 6:10 train to Oulx. Then we had a 50 minute bus ride to the venue in Sestriere. We saw the womens Giant Slalom. It was a lot of fun and thankfully quick because it was snowing! 65 skiers in all about 58 made it down the hill and as of the end of the first run an American was in first place! They should be just about done with the second round (medaling round) now.
Today we are supposed to go to the church on the hill but it is raining and is very foggy. I doubt we will be able to see much but we will see what Valeria wants to do. Tomorrow is designated as packing and cleaning day! I am still hoping to make it to the chocolate factory though!
Last night I did an interview on live air for Capital Public Radio a home town station. It was 11 pm here (as you can see I did not get much sleep!)
Well this has been a great trip and I don't know if I will be able to post again before I leave. I would like to thank everyone for reading the blog! Also I am very thankful for this incredible opportunity. I think it is really rare and I am very appriciative of the University for allowing us to take off so much school for this class. So much real life experience is hard to come by. This has definitely been a highlight of my college career!
