What people won’t tell you about the trip to Sicily is the actual trip to get to Sicily. For me, the airport security, travel time, uncomfortable sitting, and neck pains from sleeping in uncomfortable positions were balanced by the amazing company of my friends. While waiting for our flight in Boston, I drew exaggerated pictures of my classmates and Professor Gavioli. Some of my classmates were more happy than others with my depictions of them but Michael (in this photo) was not so happy (he’s the one with the red plaid shirt).
We all slept on the plane to try to prevent jet lag. We arrived at Palermo at 11:30am and were off to our first day in Sicily.
