ARIA:
Our first night, we went to see the movie

"Cast Away"

Yay! I had actually already seen it, but
I was more than happy
to see it again --
I absolutely love that movie!!

Tom Hanks is so talented, the film was
refreshingly realistic (in most parts), and
the ending always makes me cry
(even the second time!).

But aside from that,
the film really makes you think
about how many simple conveniences
we take for granted every day....
a pocket knife, a match, or even a pair of shoes.

It was interesting to see
how Chuck created these conveniences
with what he had --
he even figured out how to simulate
human interaction with "Wilson."

I think that movie
related perfectly to "Footprint Island,"
it was definitely one of my
favorite parts of the BCE experience!
