minnesotaisrael@yahoo.com + Two Islands


A decade ago, Chagit and I  used that yahoo address for our students’ email projects.  Not long after 9/11, she somehow managed to bring her kids to Totino-Grace. We’ve kept in touch periodically over the years, traveling together in and around Tuscany at one point. 

Last week we met again, taking Blue Star Ferries’ finest, first to the island of Paros for a few days, then to Naxos. 



Paros’ distinctive streets (ok, and terrific shops) did not disappoint. The island of Naxos was an adventure: heat, dodgy driver, and an archeological museum which did disappoint.

I mean, if I see one more Cycladic figure…

Naturally, there were SAVING GRACES: 

Tempted, but did not succumb

Tempting. (Naxos)

Very grateful for this week with a great old (young!) friend.
