Though I'm disappointed that I missed two days of blogging, I realize that my 13 days of travel posed a couple of significant tech challenges beyond my control.
Throughout our trip, street venders everywhere tempted tourists and travelers with the product du jour: the Selfie Stick. Although I did not purchase one, I did have fun taking selfies w/ my travel companions, particularly my colleague Pam, who is responsible for organizing our adventure, w/ Melissa, my former student who was also my roommate, and w/ some of my current and former students.
Some of my favorite selfie slices:
Melissa and me outside Buckingham Palace w/ two of the Queen's guards posing w/ us:
W/ Abbey in Paris:
W/ Suzanne, who was a foreign exchange student iny class last year. Suzanne is from France and met up w/ us in Paris.
W/ Pam in Vatigan City:
Our guide Paula at the Vatigan. She is hilarious!
