Cultural discussions with students

As reported earlier, we have been blessed with great weather. If anything, it is a bit warm, but not by much. Betty and I went to the architectural museum specializing in the Knossis Palace materials. This museum is completing a total remodel with half of it completed to date. The sections available for viewing are spectacular! Lynn also experienced successful adventures in the Heraklion area.

Our teaching assignment tonight went well. However, we possibly caused a delay in specific lesson progress. This is because Betty and I basically had a time of cultural discussions with our ninth-grade students. We discussed everything from artichokes to orange pie to Doritos nachos during movie events. Two of our students also treated us to a presentation of their mandolin skills. What an absolute treat!
