  • From Italy: Bifuel Cars
    When I went to Italy last fall, little did I know that I would enter into the world of bifuelism. While most of us here in Maine are still trying to decide whether alternative energy is even a viable choice, Italians are busy debating which alternative fuel is the best choice.
  • From Italy: L'Aquila Earthquake
    On the morning of April 6, 2009, at 3:32 a.m. an earthquake hit the Abruzzo region in Italy, causing 308 deaths. The earthquake hit the medieval city of L'Aquila, the region's capital and cultural center.
  • From Japan: November 18

    I first became aware of a curious phenomenon on my very first trip with Nuccio to Rosetta's house in Carugo. The evening was pretty wet and raw as we drove the 10 km from Meda.
  • Penobscot School: La Trattoria Rosetta
    Two days after our Penobscot School alumni reunion, Stefy flew off for a one-week vacation to Jordan, leaving her husband Nuccio and me to fend for ourselves.
  • From Italy
    My trip to Italy began with a whim. As an English language teacher at the Penobscot School in Rockland, I have had the good fortune to teach students from many parts of the world.
  • This is the first of several articles from two English teachers at Rockland's Penobscot School. For more than 20 years, Penobscot School has been teaching English to foreigners from all over the world. During those years more than 500 foreign students have come to Rockland to study English and learn a little bit about Rockland and its surroundings. Bay Bigelow and fellow teacher Chuck Marecic are traveling in different parts of the world, and they thought it might be fun to report back about things and people that are connected to Maine through the English program.
