Dude, I want to go! There is NO way I can, not with CC and NYC, but how cool would this be?!

Erm, could you fit in my suitcase do you think?

Maybe if I give up sodas? :>

I'm so sorry... But it would be nice if you could come along.
I'll take lodgings at the Ostello Santa Monaca, at EUR 19/night, as it's all easy to walk to.

That's a lot less than we are paying! But my DH is coming too, and we wanted a holiday as well as the Colloquium.

You're with the congress package? It was too dear for me, and the Ostello is really well situated (and the people are lovely too)
Are you joining for Pisa as well?

No, I am a really bad traveller on buses and coaches, and I would either be very sick, or very sleepy if I had taken my meds! Besides, my first 10 years working with costume was in theatre - RSC/National etc. so I feel I have "done" theatre costumes! (I would like to see the paintings though.)

Ah - it's I've seen the red "Eleonora-Dress" on pictures during the Colloquium for late medieval fashion in 2006, and the outing is very tempting.
Will you arrive already earlier? I think I'll stay the whole week.

Yes - we're arriving a couple of days early, and staying a couple of days after. My DH decided we would enjoy some time together as well as apart.

sorry Jenny for the hijack of your thread. Come with us do!

No worries, I'm enjoying living vicariously through your conversation!
jennylafleur From: jennylafleur Date: July 2nd, 2008 05:37 pm (UTC) (link)
Yes, well you will have to tell me all about it afterwards!! :>

All those lucky Europeans now have something to brag about to us! I would so love to go to this too.

Umm... no more feeling sorry for them not having a Costume College aye? :>

Wow, that looks really cool, and it's taking place in the Duomo of all places.
jennylafleur From: jennylafleur Date: July 2nd, 2008 05:40 pm (UTC) (link)
Very cool indeed!
