There’s a boat in the sea. They are going overseas. The departure was from Genoa.
On the boat there are two boatmen, many tourists and some children. In all, ten people. They want to reach United States, where some relatives of them live.
The boatmen are Giovanni and Telemaco. Passengers’ names are Giovanni, Francesca, Luisa, Teresa and Mario. Children’s are Giuseppe, Mario and Aldo; they’re three cousins traveling with their grandparents and they’re 2, 5 and 7 years-old.
It's a spring day and the sea is a bit rough. The children are happy and they are spending the time playing dodge-ball, and hide and seek.
The trip lasted 18 hours, during which they also played cards.
Children’s mom and aunt are waiting for: they approached the exit as soon as they saw the ship entering the harbor. When they met each other, everybody has started to sing and dance.
The children will stay 10 days, but even more! Wonderful meals will be arranged during these days. For the occasion, other uncles and nephews has been invited.
It has been sunny.
They have been all together all time long.
During these days they went to see museums, parks and the zoo. There, they have seen lions, tigers, giraffes, crocodiles and monkeys. At the museum they have seen some works of art. The children liked most the zoo; however, they are always happy when they see something new!
Ten days have been too few. What a pity!
