On Tuesday we had our second day trip of the semester. We traveled by bus to Pavia and Vegivano. Both of these stops are smaller Italian towns north of Genova. Our first stop was at an active monastery that was originally built in 1396 called Certosa Di Pavia. A "monk" who was originally from New Jersey gave us a tour through the cathedral and then throughout the monastery. It is a very interesting life that these men live. Here are some photos from the monastery.
Later we toured some local universities and also some public squares. Pavia and Vegivano are both well known for great universities.
Sorry for the lack in detail but during the trip i became deathly ill with a two day virus so I have been recovering the last couple of days. Friday morning we are leaving for Florence, Siena, and Rome, for ten days. So, I won't be able to up date my blog until we get back on February 10th.
