|Did I mention the theater has a lovely view of the city? Those Romans knew what they were doing!|
After sending the boys off to discover some artifacts in the museum, I stumbled across an interesting collection of stones--signs of the first Christians in the area (dating back to as early as 400 A.D.). Call me crazy, but when I saw these, I couldn't help wondering if this is where hipster art comes from. Maybe if they'd done owls...

Anyway, enough of the teacher babble! We had a fun afternoon running around the two ancient theaters (partially redone so as to accomodate modern plays). However, I discovered that it isn't just Halloween super heroes who don't like being filmed. Apparently, my students think it's a game to dodge my camera at all costs...result? More sneaky pics of kids jumping around. Moments like these make me want to knock their heads together... BUT...maybe I should just threaten to make them wear curtain clothes if they misbehave!

they were vacant!
