Happy Saturday

Birds singing wakes me up.  No hurries. Free Saturday came to TOTSI participants after busy, tiring but fruitful week!!!

Having some spare time until 2 o’clock we walked downhill for shopping singing all the way. What a wonderful feeling! Georgian songs in America!

One exciting moment. American friend visited Tiko and Lela with his family.  It is worth seeing how happy they are.

Afternoon was planned. Most of us (including me) went on a trip to Keene, a city in New Hampshire, 25 minute drive from our campus, and “Three Farmers` Wives” (as Neil called them later) headed to experience County Fair.
Keene - home to Keene State College and Antioch University New England, which formerly hosted the state's annual Pumpkin Fest.  Remembered as a nice, quiet city “decorated with flowers”…

As our “Three Farmers` Wives” shared, County Fair was amazing. Livestock (our favorite Lama among them), Ferris wheel, fair attractions, food, drinks, games, exhibitions, competitions … In a word, lots of thing to experience American traditions and have fun. I would like to have a look at it too.



The evening seemed to be boring at first. Tired travelers rushed to their dorms. But enthusiastic, motivated and friendly (the most important) teachers soon gathered in the living-room and started sharing each-other`s ideas about their homework, then reviewed what they have learnt, which aspects need to be specified to understand them better. As a result of the interesting and at the same time full of laughter “meeting” Dickinson family designed perfects posters focused on Experiential Learning Cycle. I would like to thank my friends for such a great team work.

Look forward to visiting Boston tomorrow!

Love and best wishes,
Your "shriala" NINO
