Mother's Day- Sunday, May 12th
Today was Mother's Day, and it carried with it a nostalgic feeling for most of us. I am very pleased to be in Italy, but its hard to be away from my mom on this day. Phone calls were made and lots of pictures were posted on social networking in distant celebration. Let's face it, if not for all of you, we might not have been able to come to Italy! Thank you so much for all you do! We love you.
Besides Mother's Day, it was also a long day of travel for the five of us in Venice. We woke up for an early morning cappuccino and hopped on a train to Torino. After a 4.5 hour ride, we were able to spend a little time in Torino again. It quickly became one of our favorite cities because of its open areas, friendly people, and tasty food. One of the highlights of my day was visiting the Egyptian Museum. Many of the group members visited it on Thursday, and I was able to check it out today! There were great people Sadly, it came time to hop on the train for Rome once again. After another 4 hour ride, we finally made it home. The final stretch of the program is upon us, and I am hoping to finish strong!
Happy Mother's Day!
