Gli asini la sanno lunga! Donkeys know a lot of secrets!

IMG_4185

ZigoZago takes his name from an ancient and secret place somewhere in Italy, ruled by Queen Babaluba and her faithful wizard. As it happens in all the legends, it’s hard to tell what is true and what has been added up to give flavor to the story. ZigoZago is investigating his background and insists that only a donkey could unveil the truth about his origins.

But where do you find a donkey in a city, in 2015?! We’ll have to explore the country….

Cerca qui e cerca la`, look here and look there, we have finally found a family of donkeys and ZigoZago finally was able to have a good chat with Agostino and Camilla, two very kind donkeys who whispered something in his ear. Now I am so curious but our cheeky Zigo Zago still keeps the segret! He will drive me mad! What do you think Donkey Agostino told him? http://youtu.be/3z0tlXGcNZ4

ZigoZago ha fame di dolci!

IMG_4269IMG_4270IMG_3881IMG_4006

Zigo Zago ha fame! He is hungry like… a donkey, I guess, but he likes the same things I do: gelato, nutella, cioccolata… Here is my friend poking his nose into a yammy icecream, (actually two, he is planning to have ‘mille’, 1000 of them before leaving!) and…hey, look at this street signal! It doesn’t say ‘work in progress’, it seems that something else is in progress here! Can you tell what is it all about?

Eccoci! Here we are!

Where are we? Dove siamo?  Dov’e` Zigo Zago?

We are in the city of Lecce, capital of the Salento, an area also known as “tacco d’Italia”, the heel of Italy, (if you see the shape of the Italian country as a boot, well, we are right in the heel of the boot!)

Here in five pictures zooming in, we post a bit of geography for all those who want to have an idea of where we have moved for the next week.

ZigoZago is so happy, he is singing all the time, have a look: http://youtu.be/Tpp7xEmdK5I

Ciao a tutti, ci vediamo presto!

Buongiorno ragazzi!

Zigo Zago and me are spending three weeks in Italy to share and exchange experiences and ideas with some Italian schools. Many people want to know about our Multicultural Celebrations, as they are fun and also they help other children around the world to have a better education. I also want to interview some Italian students and ask them to share their best games and activities with us. L’Asinello Zigo Zago wants to eat lots of gelato and he wants to meet an Italian family of donkeys! If you are interested in our adventures, keep following us, we’ll post right here pictures, videos and funny stories that can happen to you while you are ‘in giro per l’Italia’!

Arrivederci, see you soon!

Ciao a tutti! Hi everyone!

We are getting ready to fly to Italy, we are very excited and checking up if we are able to use this technology!

I’m lucky because Zigo Zago learns fast like all the youngsters and he is teaching me lots of tricks.

He is so happy to represent all the students of FWPS during this journey and already loves them all dearly.

One of our students even took him a cup-cake while he was resting in his magic bed. Zigo Zago & the cup-cake!I think it was Daniel: thank you Daniel, Zigo Zago was very touched by your kindness! Here is a picture of the event, enjoy your holidays everyone, and keep following us!
