<< I would like to give you a student's viewpoint. In high school I went to
Greece one year and Scotland and England another with the dance team. If you

This is really shocking. How can education BE education when such things
happen? Those women were not there for the kids, but for themselves. They
were the worst kind of ugly Americans, culture centric and disrespectful.
They used the tour for selfish ends.
The Greek Easter service is a lovely thing to see and hear.
Fish and chips are cooked in boiling oil!
And to miss the British Museum and the Tate gallery and so much more!!
Sue them!! (just kidding) But damn anyway.
