The reason that we started class a week late is because I was in Italy. As we walked around Rome, we would come upon the most amazing fortresses, cathedrals and monuments and other times we'd just come upon some random ruins, seemingly strewn haphazardly around the city. Like some enormous leftover confetti from a past parade.
I appreciate your sticking with the class, though. I hope that you'll get what you came here for!
And speaking of getting what I came for - wasn't Spring supposed to have come last week? We came back from a lovely Primavera in Italy to gray skies and snow! And cold!
Well, we'll be nice and cozy in our little OLLI computer lab - so let's get started!
