    My Summer Vacation

    I shall be highly obliged if you kindly help me to correct the following essay.

    Summer vacation is probably the happiest period in my life. The vacation started on 16th May and ended on 9th June.
    The purpose of the summer vacation is to tide over the unbearable heat of the summer months. The other purpose is to provide a chance me to make up my deficiency subjects. It also gives an opportunity to me to visit new places.
    I visited to my aunty’s home at Dhakuria, Kolkata for 8 days. I enjoyed with my brother-in-law, Saheb by visiting Science City, Victoria Memorial Hall and Nicco Park.
    I came back at home stayed for 7 days. Again I visited to my native place, Chandannagar for 9 days. I met with my father-in-law and mother-in-law. I enjoyed with them very much during my holidays.

The summer vacation was a happy experience for me and its memory is still green in my mind. I traveled there for a week, It wasn't my first trip to this fabulous country - I've been there few times before. We took a ferry from Hong Kong to a chinese city called shenzen near the border, I was lucky enough to have my father with me to show me around.
Shenzen is a small town not far from Hong-Kong and we spent the day wandering through markets, taking in the sights, and generally just relaxing, and then we took a ferry back to HK, I remained in HK for a few days and flew back to Israel .
When I came back to Israel I was overwhelmed by the economic, military and social problems that developed while I was away. mostly by the new law suggested by judge Tal, it felt like my whole world was collapsing on me so I decided to run away from all the mayhem, pollution, terror to a quiet place , a place that I can lie down between the sand – Greece. I flew to the island of Kos.
It was the most amazing week of my life. the wonderful experience included beautiful beaches, incredible parties and meeting interesting people.

While in Madrid, we stayed in a really luxurious grand hotel, the aptly named Westin Palace, just a few blocks away from the Prado Art Museum, thanks to the generosity of Telefonica, which was sponsoring my big public talk here.

After checking in, we wandered over to the Prado to soak up a little culture. Personally, what drew me here was the chance to see Hieroymous Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights, a work which has fascinated me since I first wrote a paper about it in high school: I still can’t figure out how to place Bosch in the context of his times. Where did this guy come from? Almost as astonishing to us were some of the religious paintings — such as one where milk shoots out of the breast of the Virgin Mary and across the room into the mouth of a praying saint. (We found that there was a consistent fascination with this particular bodily fluid in religious art across Europe.)

Not surprisingly, Spanish artists, such as El Greco, Goya, and Velazquez, were especially well represented in the collection, and it was breathtaking to experience the size and intense colors of some of these works.

Second, I was fascinated by the ways that the picture juxtaposes and contrasts two very different spaces of action — the foreground in the kitchen, the background in the dining room — and links them thematically to the core Biblical story of the two sisters, Martha busily preparing the meal, while her sister, Mary, sat at Jesus’s feet and listened to his word. I have been spending lots of time thinking, especially about still life paintings, but also other works which include a strong attention to material culture, in relation to my new Comics and Stuff project. I ended up grabbing a picture off the internet and incorporating this work intoa talk I gave in Madrid about this project.

The following morning, Pilar Lacasa picked me up at the hotel and drove me out to the University of Alcala to present “The Samba School Revisited: Play, Performance, and Participation in Education. Lacasa has been a frequent visitor to the Comparative Media Studies program through the years, where she sat in on classes, participated in conferences, and contributed to our research.

The talk started with my own observations about how one of Rio’s Samba Schools encouraged multiple forms of participation in the creative process.

Here, you see Pilar sitting next to me on the podium during the talk:

and me interacting with some of her students in the coutryard afterwords.

That evening, I paid my respects to another friend, Nacho Gallego Perez, who asked me to present my Future of Content talk at the Campus of Leganes, organized by Research Group about Television, Cinema, and Culture at Universidad Carlos III. Perez, who does work on grassroots use of digital radio and podcasting in Spain, had given a guest lecture in my New Media and Culture class at USC and participated in a workshop my Civic Paths group organized for MacArthur’s Digital Media and Culture conference. Nacho and Luis Albornoz took me out afterwards to enjoy Tapas.

After a morning of interviews organized by Telefonica, I went out to give a talk about “Comics..and Stuff” at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, hosted by Jose M.

No sooner did I arrive back at my hotel, then another host, the international media literacy advocate Roberto Aparici, arrived to pick me up. I met Roberto years ago at MIT, when Textual Poachers was first coming out and he was in residence working on an early interactive media project. Roberto and I sat down in a studio at a local educational television station to record a most enjoyable conversation which explored our shared interests in new media literacies and participatory politics.

And then, I talked about Play and Pedagogy as the final speaker at the Seminario internacional Redes sociales, educacion mediatica y apprendizaje digital, an event which brought together practicing teachers and educational researchers.

My talk was preceded by a presentation on the affordances of social media by Gunther Kress (University of London). Kress’s work on “Multimodal Literacy” offers some valuable conceptual tools for thinking about transmedia learning, and so I was honored to have a chance to chat with him, however briefly.
