Everything (and everyone!) looked beautiful.

The Paper Work department.

Siena’s wheel is on top, the third one from the left, with gold and bronze (mmm not sure how we’ll take that home.)

    ¡¡ QUE ELEGANCIA !!! Siena se ve preciosa , Lucas muy elegante con su camisa ¿ donde dejó la polera de la “U”? , Mark con corbata ¡ se pasó ! y tú con el sari que te estaban haciendo ¡ una maravilla !
    ¡Que lindas las artesanías ! ¿ con que hizo la Siena esas flores pintadas ? ¿ aprendiste a hacer esas flores de género ? ¡ me encantan ! y están de moda aqui , como adorno en la ropa , como collar ( colgadas con una cinta ) y hasta como pulsera .

      No, no hemos aprendido a hacer las flores. La verdad es que hay tantas cosas que ver y aprender, que se nos estan acabando los dias para todas las cosas. Al comienzo parecia que tendriamos tiempor para todo y demas… pero los dias pasan volando y hay tantas cosas que aun queremos hacer. Voy a preguntar lo de las flores para poder contarte y hacerlas contigo.
      Si, estabamos todos bien elegantes. Lucas dejo su camiseta al lado por estas horas, pero no se pone camisa ni por equivocacion!

    More amazing beauty! As everywhere, there are areas where you could critique the student body for improvement but when it came to the creative expression in the arts and music this place really flourished.

    You are correct. There is no way to get the art home in tact. What we did was take pictures of the art and gave them to friends. Then at home we cropped, edited and framed the art in pictures. They look great and a super memory.

    This post reminds me of the beautiful birthday art the kids do on bedsheets and hang on the walls to the way to the mess. The bursar was always pretty meager with the boys but seemed to be able to turn a blind eye to the beautiful vandalism.
