Today is a bit frustrating because Annette and I have a ton of pictures to share and upload but "Off Exploring" is updating their site and will not let us upload them until tomorrow. So, please be patient with me! The pictures are worth the wait....trust me! If you have seen: "Under the Tuscan Sun" or "The English Patient" then you will know what kind of pictures we have, if not....well I believe you will still enjoy them and maybe book a trip over here yourself! :-)
We did go on a bus tour yesterday....it was 50 Euros per person, which sounds like a lot but when it included a wine tasting, lunch, and an exclusive tour of the restraunts' wine cellar, with a knowledgeable and native tour guideit was totally worth it! A lot of our classmates headed to Venice, Pisa and Florence for the weekend. To us it was just to expensive to try....but I believe we ended up with the better deal! :-)
Our house mother spoils us! She does our laundry, changes our sheets, and has breakfast and dinner ready for us. She works with us and critiques our sentences and pronunciation for our classes and dotes on us a lot.
We are hoping to join the group headed to Mare which I am told is near the beach. We will still go if it rains but I am hoping and praying for sun! We have had rain every day that we have been here. We hope that it will turn nice for a whole day before we leave!
Well, I have got to go. We have a bus to catch and homework to do for tomorrow!! Whew!! The quote that comes to mind seems to fit perfectly: "We have much to do and Less time to do it in!" ~ Robin Hood: Men in Tights
