A day of Davids

... this is tourist central. Lots of people, busses and souvenir stalls. One reason is the great view over the city and secondly, there is David in bronze. Very green and a little grubby, but still looks great. We look around, enjoy the view and take some photos. We catch the bus back and are treated to the second half of the commentary. We go and have some pre dinner drinks, including some craft beer place. We saw a nice looking restaurant in our travels so we make ...

My lighting class runs from noon until 2:30. Most of my other classes are 2 and 1/2 hours long. Except tomorrow...that one is 5. It's my studio class which I expected to be my longest class. It always is at Endicott but there it's only 3 hours tops. So this is going to be ...
