... so luckily I still have six weeks left! I keep reminding Amanda of that fact and I think she's getting close to punching me in the face! ;) I just finished packing. It took me longer than normal because I wanted to check every corner and pocket to make sure I'm not bringing home any pet lizards! I was sure one snuck into my luggage, but I think I'm good (I hope!). I have Italian MTV on in the background. They love their rap, but the videos are hilarious! I don't know if ...
I wish I could capture how beautiful it was to swim in the sea this afternoon. We spent two hours in the water just taking in the mountainous views and enjoying the gentle waves. The water was very clear and we could even see little fish swimming by our feet.

According to Wikipedia, carbon dating has determined the oldest volcanic layers to be from the 8th–6th centuries BC (around the time the city was founded). Wow! To view the ruins of this city up close is to be blown away by the intricate architecture and fine artistry of the buildings, columns, road construction, water ...
