Arrivederci, Firenze!

It certainly doesn’t feel as if a month has passed together. The time flew by and after just a few days the group went from being total strangers to best of friends. For our last day, we walked up to San Miniato al Monte (a lovely church on a hill overlooking the city) and heard Gregorian chanting. Then, we headed down to Piazzale Michelangelo to get some last pictures with a view of our home away from home.

We ended the evening with a dinner at a local restaurant where students enjoyed everything from pizza to pasta to tiramasu. We signed our yearbooks throughout the dinner to remind each other of the great memories made. Finally, at 3:30 in the morning, most of the group was up to head to Rome for their flight home. There were last minute tears and laughter (mostly delirium at that hour!). We are happy to report the group flight is currently at their gate awaiting departure. It has been an excellent summer with a fantastic group of kids. From your staff: we wish you all the best in your future endeavors and hope to see you again, perhaps on another Summerfuel adventure! Ciao!
