You don’t need to worry about security; Dr. Giles and his associates have that taken care of. Actually, it’s probably the most secure archeological dig I’ve ever been at. They had a perimeter set up and they have some students that… for want of a better word –keep watch. They have a schedule that they keep to and the poor kids that got stuck with guard duty keep in radio contact. Of course, the kids don’t have guns, but they do have knives and swords and their vehicles. I watched one of the girls deliberately run some intruders into a ditch. They use the swords to intimidate strangers to keep away from the dig, at least that’s what Dawn said. I haven’t noticed, being involved with our historical finds. The swords seemed odd to me until Cassie mentioned that most of the kids are using fencing as their physical education credit and that they have to keep up with their exercises or risk a lower grade.
I had to laugh, what other gym activity would interest history majors? Cassie, being different, is planning on taking hand-to-hand combat courses. She doesn’t want to get rusty.

Greece is so much fun and it’s so visual stimulating! I have taken so many pictures with my new camera that you bought me. (Thanks again for the gift.) I’ve attached a few to this e-mail. The first picture is of Daniel and the other advisors of the dig –at the dig. The last picture is of Kurt. Isn’t he cute? He got to come ‘cause he’s fluent in Greek. I’ve gotten to spend a lot of time with him. He’s so sweet.
Sorry, wiping off the drool.
I think he’s starting to like me too!
