Deborah had visited before with her class and was our unofficial tour guide through the streets and as we encountered English speaking tours, we would listen in. It was amazing hearing some of the stories and seeing such history.
There was a whole fenced off area that help artifacts, like these urns and Deborah told all of us to imagine being a child or a slave told to go to the fountain and retrieve water carrying one of these. I'm gonna frame this one and put it in the hall outside the kiddos' room as a reminder that I'm not forcing them into slavery... just asking them to clean up after themselves.
After exploring we went out to lunch... my shirt has never met a pasta dish it didn't like. This was fabulous! Mushrooms and homemade pasta in a creamy tomato basil sauce. Sis had gnocchi and Eli had spaghetti... and pizza. I have a picture of him eating his slice of pizza with one hand and his fork prepped and ready to dive into his pasta with the other while staring at the TV the was behind our table, but it won't load. It was hilarious!
Next weekend is the big festival on base that Amber's department puts on and the little people crew and I will be going on Sunday. So until our next adventure!
