Visiting with Martina

What a way to start our official work week - beautiful blue skies, a slight breeze, and a team of three with willing spirits. Perry and I went on a short morning adventure. We saw a monastery, El Greco Museum, beautiful countryside with citrus trees, and goats and sheep. A tour book could not have done better.

Lynn reported she went on a long walk that got longer than expected but was very enjoyable.  Just imagine sitting outdoors in a cafĂ© and reading a book with uninterrupted time. Add to that visual picture, the pleasure of two cappuccinos.

Tonight we went to the English program school. It’s just down the road in Gazi. We met Matina the owner, director, and immigrant from New York who operates this student-centered program to assist students to pass needed English examinations. We had a wonderful time visiting with the students and Matina in English.

Message of the Day:  “To teach is to touch a life forever.”
