iter, itineris (3rd, nt)

Two weeks from today I will be on a plane, with three other teachers and 30-odd Latin and Ancient History students, for a 17 day trip around Italy and the U.S. Here are some highlights of our itinerary:

Enjoy the sights, sir!

"Pompeii has been in pop culture significantly since rediscovery. Book I of the Cambridge Latin Course teaches Latin while telling the story of a Pompeii resident, Lucius Caecilius Iucundus, from the reign of Nero to that of Vespasian. The book ends when Mount Vesuvius erupts, where Caecilius and his household are killed. The books have a cult following and students have been known to go to Pompeii just to track down Caecilius's house."

*This* close...this close... TT_TT

...and when I say "30 odd students", not all of them were odd, but the ones that were more than made up for the others...
