General Trip Information
"To have seen Italy without seeing Sicily is not having seen Italy at all. For Sicily is the key to everything." (Goethe)

We have discovered that Bryn Mawrters enjoy receiving information about their trip-mates in advance. Therefore, we'd like to put together a trip roster for everyone, including name, address, college affiliation, and whatever else you think would be of particular interest for the others in the group. To ensure that your profile best reflects you, we ask that you write your own to share. Please take the time to fill out the enclosed form and send it to the Alumnae Association in the return envelope provided by October 1st. We shall print your profile as submitted.
Professor Emerita Bruni Ridgway has offered to give a slide lecture at 2:00 p.m. on October 16th, 2001, on Bryn Mawr's campus. She will be giving an overview of the Archaeological sites and terms for us before the trip departs. There are rooms reserved at Wyndham for those of you who are interested in participating. Please call me if you are interested in attending so that I can secure a room with your name. The rate for alumnae (and those participating in our trips) is $80 per night. Please let me know no later than October 1st if you are interested in this special presentation. In addition, if you would like to have a car drive you from Bryn Mawr College to the airport on the afternoon of October 17th, please let me know. Once I have a passenger count I will be able to tell you how much the shuttle will cost.
Enclosed please also find a copy of the Blue Guide for Sicily, compliments of the Alumnae Association. Bruni recommends this book as the best one to cover the archaeological sites. She also suggests On Persephone's Island: A Sicilian Journal by Mary Taylor Simeti, who will be our guide at a Sicilian market during our tour; it will certainly whet your appetite for Sicily!
Enjoy the trip!
