Hello friends! Well, okay, the teacher disappeared for a bit, but I'm back and in full effect! Just look at this picture of Andrew and I in a crazed karate fight at Circus Maximus- or wait- is he getting an eyelash out of my eye...
Teaching has been absolutely amazing! This year has already been filled with many wonderful adventures and challenges, and it is only November! And, while busily teaching the little ones, Andrew and I have also been taking advantage of this most incredible city that we live in!
During a recent visit with our friend Chad, I finally made it to that creepy Cappucchin-monk-grave-bone-mosaic church! Yikes! I said I would never do it, and then there I was. For those of you who don't know what I am talking about, this is a church filled with the graves of 4000 monks, of which only about 5 (completely unfounded estimate) are actually underground! the rest had their bones used for mosaics on the walls of the crypt! And OF COURSE they are piping creepy organ music into the space as well. Really.
A most fantastic bakery just opened across the street, so if I'm not looking too bedraggled tomorrow morning, I'll blog a picture of my Saturday morning cappuccino and pastry routine!
