SAIL, Portland

Posted by Daniela Elza on Aug 05 2015

I love the long days. The hours spent on the patio. The opportunity to travel here and there. In July I went to Portland (OR) where for the second year in a row I volunteered for the Summer Academy to Inspire Learning (SAIL) camp. It is for high school kids and hopes to inspire them to go to college and university. There are all sorts of subjects covered during the week like Economics, Architecture, Engineering, Neuro-Science etc. In my case we got busy writing and explored what writing has to offer to our curiosities and discoveries through language. I was pleased that we could offer each of the participants a copy of the book of It.

While in Portland we also managed to go on a day hike to Eagle Creek in the Columbia River Gorge. Yes, it was a gorge-ous place. Here are a few photos from some of what we saw.
