We crammed in a LOT in those 8 days!!!  It was amazing to walk on the same, original streets that people 2000 years ago walked on.  The kids (and us!!!) LOVED the history (they are Latin students, after all, so this is what they had been learning about for years!).  I was so lucky to have gone on this trip–definitely a trip of a lifetime!!

 

Check back tonight for an entry about our dinner with a special guest (the dinner is happening tonight….)
