Playfully

As the tall ship Pelican of London makes her way down the English Channel to the edge of the continent and across the Atlantic, the young Ocean College students are introduced to a game that involves transferring a cupful of water from plate to plate balanced on the heads of a line of participants.

You could think that Michi introduced this game for the many things, young people can learn from it: team work, communication, patience and strategy are among them.

Another perspective is the sheer joy of playing without purpose – just being.
