Bucket list #2

Ravenna did not disappoint. so many amazing mosaics. This one is of Abraham showing hospitality while Sarah looks on and then he tries to sacrifice Isaac. this one shows Jesus getting baptized surrounded by his apostles and a throne. It looks like the throne is a Turkish poof. Of course. I missed getting a picture of the last supper where everyone is eating while reclining Roman style. This was definitely worth a side trip to see.

Bucket list item #1

We spent most of the day at the Egyptian museum in Turin. They have an amazing collection we’ve been wanting to see for a while. We saw mummies: lots of 3000 year old clothes: fun dishes. and ancient linen yarn.

If we can’t be in Egypt this was pretty close.

No pics

We had a lovely day yesterday. Will spent the day at his meeting. He was excited by the things he learned. I spent the day sleeping in, doing some shopping and visiting the cathedral. This afternoon we leave for Turin.
