Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!

Or should I say "Grease 2"? For the second time, I visited Greece with MMC's very own Rob Dutiel, Mark Ringer, and Jill Stevenson! After a month of classes up at 71st street, where we learned about Ancient Greek culture, plays, and architecture - as well as, for the first time, about the Byzantine period and its responsibility for preserving so many of the texts we still study today, it was time to head to JFK! Following a similar but not identical route to the last trip I to

I Graduated! And More Major Life Updates

I greatly underestimated how much work four classes, a for-credit internship, and gearing up to graduate would take, and blogging fell by the wayside this semester.

It's the most breathtaking place I have ever seen. We arrived in the late afternoon after our visits to the monasteries. There is a local restaurant there that our professors, Dr. Ringer and Rob Dutiel, eat at every time they do this trip.

Vergina and Dion

The first of many early mornings on the bus! Our first stop of the day was the tomb of Phillip II, father of Alexander the Great, in Vergina. One of the best preserved tombs ever found, as it was never looted. Buried below the tombs of two soldiers, grave robbers did not think to dig so deep. We got to explore the almost untouched tomb and even got to see the paint inside that had survived. It really felt like going back in time! Our second stop of the day was an archeologica
