We stayed over in Italy after our writing cruise this year. We rented a lovely villa with three other writers and toured around Umbria during the day, cooked wonderful Italian meals in the afternoon, and read to each other in the evenings.
Our dear friend Dennis Cigler, the handsome one with scarf, teaches at an Arts Prep School In Rome, Italy. The video is of his students preparing for the IB Visual Arts Exams.
Congratulations, dear friend.
April 10, 2010 - Atlantic Ocean We leave today for a Trans-Atlantic cruise aboard the Navigator of the Seas on a voyage to the Canary Islands, Barcelona, Nice, Florence, and Rome.
We have rented an apartment in Rome and look forward to several days of touring this grand city with our friend and artist, Dennis Cigler. Dennis heads the art department at one of Rome's most prestigious schools. In his spare time he guides couples on exclusive private tours of the city, in the style of the Grand Tours of the nineteenth century.
We look forward to visiting so many great places and hope to capture some great images and more stories. -L
