My how time flies!


Hi everyone,
Well, the international adventures of the MAP students in the Teen Global Exchange Program will soon be coming to an end. We heard back from them and the photos they will soon post will amaze and astound you! Here is a photo sent by Tariq! Ah, he captured the essence of Venice in all its glory.

I have a feeling the students won’t realize how culturally stimulating this trip was until they get home and make comparisons. That was my experience when I left the US borders. Home made pizza for my dinner tonight in honor of the return of our students to Indy.

Hey Ponce group! How will you share what you did, what you learned and what your impressions were? I hope you all plan to share your experiences in your community. Would love to hear from you when you get back!

Alberto will be posting again very soon so look for words of wisdom and of course, more questions from our Indy Connection host. Ciao for now!

About Carol

Location: Indianapolis, Indiana, United States
Works In: Audience Engagement at the Indianapolis Museum of Art
Interests: Painting, reading and jewelry making
My favorite kind of movies: Comedy, documentary films, "sappy" love stories and romantic films and some action films. Really good horror films tend to make my heart race so I often avoid them.
Favorite Movies: "The Art of the Steal," "You've Got Mail," "Poltergeist" (This movie really was scary when it first came out - yes, really!)
Favorite Music: Definitely eclectic taste in music - "old school" music (please don't ask how old), Jazz, R & B, some Hip Hop and I also like Classical music (as in Bach and Mozart).
Favorite Food: My taste in food varies, I love both boiled and fried plantain because they provide the body with a lot of iron, curried chicken, hand-made pizza (and many other Italian dishes). Eat fruit and veggies whenever I feel the need and enjoy Indian and Ethiopian food from time to time.
What I hope to learn from this project: I hope to experience Italy and the Biennale remotely! It will be great fun to work with our Indy student host Alberto as we try to envision the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of this historical place. Can't wait to get the first message from our teams from Ponce and Indy – Ready, set, ... Wait for it…..!
