Today was my 8th day of teaching and I am still beat! Most days, after putting in an 8-10 hour day, I am passed out two to three hours after arriving back home at night. It is amazing how much energy preschoolers have and how little energy I have. This year however, I will be getting a second mini vacation very soon! I am renting a place on the beach up on the North Shore for a few days when my friends Katia and Guido arrive.
Meanwhile, I will try to do a few more posts before they arrive. I then may have to take a little detour on this blog and post a few pictures of Hawaii.
In Piazza della Minerva, you will find a very cute elephant. This elephant is the base for an Egyptian obelisk. The Roman name for this statue is "Pulcino della Minerva". The statue is located in front of the Basilica di Santa Maria sopra Minerva and behind the Pantheon.
In Piazza Mattei, you will find the turtle fountain. The proper name however is the Tortoise Fountain or the Fontana delle Tartarughe.
