It is hard to believe, but today marks the end of the third week of the CIMBA program. Only one more week to go. The program is certainly moving by very quickly. After class this morning, the students will be jet-setting off on their final travel weekend of the program. There is a large group of students visiting Paris, but others in my class are planning trips to Switzerland, Amsterdam, and Venice.
My family is spending the 3-day weekend in Rome, which was not originally very high on my list of destinations. I prefer the mountains over cities, but Rome is just one of those places that one must visit. My 12-year old son studied ancient Rome in school last year, and he really wanted to go see the Coliseum and Roman ruins. How can we say no to that? Now that our trip is all planned out, I am looking forward to the visit.
