#SOL15, Day 31: Selfie Slices, Selfie Sticks, and Seeing Ourselves
Today theonth of blogging in the SOL Story Challenge ends. Thank you Two Writing Teachers for hosting this amazing program. I'll be back each Tuesday with more slices.
Though I'm disappointed that I missed two days of blogging, I realize that my 13 days of travel posed a couple of significant tech challenges beyond my control.
Throughout our trip, street venders everywhere tempted tourists and travelers with the product du jour: the Selfie Stick. Although I did not purchase one, I did have fun taking selfies w/ my travel companions, particularly my colleague Pam, who is responsible for organizing our adventure, w/ Melissa, my former student who was also my roommate, and w/ some of my current and former students.
Some of my favorite selfie slices:
Melissa and me outside Buckingham Palace w/ two of the Queen's guards posing w/ us:
W/ Abbey in Paris:
W/ Suzanne, who was a foreign exchange student iny class last year. Suzanne is from France and met up w/ us in Paris.
W/ Pam in Vatigan City:
Our guide Paula at the Vatigan. She is hilarious!
