Toga Party! (Tour of Ancient Rome)

Toga! Toga! Toga! We all dressed the part for our tour to ancient Rome. Many thanks to Brice and Shirley Hobrock as our tour guides. We heard the story of Romulus and Remus and learned a little Latin: cane canem (beware of the dog). Heard an orator or two: Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears… Did you know that ancient Romans cooked mice, dipped them in honey and rolled them in sesame seeds as a delicacy? Yum. Brutus (aka Brice) fixed us several delicacies and we feasted like gods.
