Life’s a Beach

Today we forgot all about canceled flights and everything we are missing in the U.S. and we went to the beach!  It was sunny and in the lower 70s today, so we went with twenty of the Mount students to the western coast of Italy today to a town called Viareggio.  Being stranded doesn’t mean we have to be miserable!  Nothing like the spirit of our Mount students to make any situation a lot of fun!

An anonymous donor paid for all of the students’ train tickets to the beach today!  So whoever you are – thanks so much!  The Mount students were very grateful! 

The AP picked up a line from my post two days ago about the now famous Brain Golden!  (Brian gave me permission to inform the world of his lack of underwear!)  Brian expects a Calvin Klein or Fruit of the Loom endorsement when he returns to the U.S.  http://wjz.com/local/student.stuck.in.2.1649800.html

Another story appeared in the Frederick News Post about us as well:  http://www.fredericknewspost.com/sections/news/display.htm?StoryID=103993

Here is the beautiful beach town of Viareggio and the pictures from today:
