This morning we were up bright and early to enjoy the plentiful Elite Hotel breakfast before another eventful and fun filled day! Shortly after, students boarded the bus for an excursion to the ancient Greek City-State Sparta and Mystra. We were lucky enough to have an extremely knowledgeable tour guide, Dimitri who we found out was actually an archaeologist by trade. We completed a bus tour of Sparta and later began our tour at the Byzantine city of Mystra. A native of this part of Greece, Dimitri was well informed about every part of this magical place, and had an interesting story to tell around every little corner in Mystra.
The excursion to Sparta and Mystra marks the end of our optional excursions for students. Now its back to the hotel for class time, and wrapping up final presentations.
