Wrapping Up!

August 3: Wrapping Up!
Blog written by Jessie Ludin, Upperville, Virginia

The day started off with each student working to finish up their On Assignment projects and preparing for the evening presentation session. For the Photography students it was picking their top five photos of the trip and for the Archaeology and Ancient Culture students it was finishing up their guidebook. We split up in groups for lunch and met back up at the hostel at 3:00 to get ready for our final presentations.

We were happy to have Peter Frost joined us to view our presentations and to sign his books at the end of the session. At 7:00 we headed off for dinner at a fashionable restaurant called Fallen Angel. After dinner we celebrated being all finished up by heading to a salsa club to practice our newly learned dancing skills!
