My former colleague at Hampton University, Daisy Williams, is teaching two different classes in Rome this summer in addition to being the director of University of Oregon’s study abroad program in the ancient city. One is architecture studio and the other is a drawing course, pictured here.
Tomorrow, I’ll join the drawing course for a morning outing… so I’d better hit the sack now!

I hopped into a cab at 4:30 this morning, headed for Rome. I’ve been invited to spend a week here as a “Scholar in Residence” for the University of Oregon’s summer study abroad program.
I arrived in the city, moved into a spacious apartment at Iowa State’s academic center in Rome, lunched with Prof. Daisy Williams, and pulled together a presentation for tomorrow. Now, off to see some sights….
Hopped of the bus at Torre d’Argentina…
…and headed for the ISU architecture center, and the apartment where I’m staying this week.
