Hi everybody! We have been in Sicily just over a week. We are having a wonderful time. Classes are going well -- and everybody is learning a lot of Italian! This past weekend we visited Ragusa and Noto -- jewels of Sicilian baroque art and architecture. We also went to Taormina and visited the Greek amphitheater there. Finally, we spent some time at the beautiful beach on Giardini Naxos. Everybody will be begin more blogging soon.
