Live+Work+SMdP=One Intense Experience Day 4

After an exciting day in the Vatican and struggling last night with the damn internet, (that still barely works…) today we had to start compiling work and also do little presentations at different sites around Santa Maria della Pieta.  Today Lorenzo and Julia took us around Santa Maria della Pieta and showed us sites that have high potential to be very experiential.  In addition to showing us the sites, each group had to express their experiences with the trip they made yesterday outside the complex.  I feel that just talking about our experiences was kind of a waist of time because each group just stood up there and talked about what they did.  Half the people were not paying attention, and the other half are getting bit my mosquitoes.  The fun part about that day was the actually getting to see some different areas I have never seen.  At the end we chose our site that I had already stumbled upon and liked from my day when I did the individual derive.

We learned that our site was an old agricultural building and the picture above shows where the patients and nurses built little planter areas where there were herbs, vegetables, and flowers once planted.  Additionally the site had a great procession to it with an alley of trees, a nice little building that used to be a bathroom and wood-burning oven, and a space where the trees look like hands to sit in and fingers extending to the heavens. All in the entire site was great.  Unfortunately we had to refocus back onto our bike ride and experiences we had learned from earlier in the week.  That evening and into the next morning, our group created a presentation that needed to be ready for 9 am tomorrow morning.
