Lydia's been hard at work studying Italian, vocal training, and doing opera. This weekend she traveled to Pesaro the birthplace of Rossini which is on the Adriatic Sea. It's been hot there all week - 104 degrees! We can IM her @ 6:30 am here which is 12:30 pm there. She has three weeks left then it'll be time to pack up her things and move back to school.
