Tomorrow we'll go to Niki de Saint Phalle gardens (photo at right), and I can hardly wait. I have been wanting to see the gardens forever. I am so excited!!! yay!!! After we get back I have a little project planned where we'll create our own versions of sculptures inspired by the gardens.
I'm still sick, it's turned into a nasty sinus infection but luckily I brought a stash of antibiotics with me so that has been helping.
We haven't yet found an internet cafe that will let us download photos -- we even did a couple small video clips! So I'll have to post those when I get home.
It's hard for me to get time to post because it's really busy with the classes all day, so I'll post in a couple days!
"mummy" - thanks for keeping us posted on Toby and the cats! Loved the alarm set-off. Poor Stanley must have thought he had to play guard cat since Toby wasn't around....
Here is a mummy update. Claudine called me yesterday, just as I was getting out of a cab at Midway Airport. She was over the moon about the visit to Niki de Saint Gardens. Said it was one of the most inspiring things she had done. I got home to a lukewarm welcome from Toby, the peke. He has bonded big time with my husband, who is a huge animal person. Likes animals better than most people. Toby walking non-stop if allowed. I moved his bed into my room because he keeps talking all night long and wakes one up. He and our old cat Friday are a real pair. If Friday wants something, Toby comes and "onks" until we get the message. Paul doing lots of sightseeing. He and Claudine's friend martha are in Florence today.
Post again soon. Mummy
