Our day's classes started at 10:45 with the last sessions with Fr. Attard. Today we covered topics in Medical ethics. Again my notes are quite techinical and I need some time to unravel them. So rather than give too little, (and I have much to do today to prepare for departure to Israel tomorrow) I am going to leave it that it was a fascinating class with much to think about.
After pranzo, I am in my room getting things ready to leave. I am bloggin obviously. But I also have to prepare copies of many documents to carry with me to the Holy Land. The Israelis are quite a bit more thorough in their screening of travellers in and out of Israel than the Italians are at their borders. So I need receipts of all my incoming flights, and my out going flights over the next few months. They want to be guaranteed that I have the neccessary flights to leave Europe when I'm supposed to. I also have to get my cash supply prepared.
Also on the list is packing, preparing for my Italian class tonight, and prepare a homily for Mass for our group at 7:15 tomorrow morning before we leave.
So it is now 4:25pm. I am travelling with my laptop, but I am not sure when I will be able to post on the blog. I am only certain of interent connections on the first night at Tel Aviv, and the last 4 nights at the Notre Dame Center. So if it seems like I have vanished for a few days, have no fear. I'll be back.
