Getting ready to go! Got all of the books read and even though reading textbooks in the summer is a drag, they weren”t that bad. My favorite of the set was the Impressionism book. I liked how it went back and forth from general history to personal stories about the impressionist painters. Next up is the challenge of packing. We were suggested to only take a 14 x 20 suitcase and carry on if possible. How do I pack for a month bringing only what can fit into a duffel leaving room for things to bring home? We shall see….
