    The winter walk It was a cold day on December twenty-first, 1995 as the thermometer read negative forty degrees, Fahrenheit. My mom had to work and since I only went to school every other day I had to go to daycare. Never did I know that I would have to walk to town as my babysitter had forgotten to tell my mom that she wouldn’t be home. A few details may be a little cloudy, as I was only five. This is what I will never forget. My mom told me to get my snowsuit and boots as it was time to go. I protested “Why do I have to wear them? I have to take them off right when I get there anyways!”

    Stephen Bianchi English 120S Professor Vail 20th Sept. 2010 Into The Mountains Opening my tired eyes and cracking my sore back from a bad night sleep on a dusty mat, I take notice of the obnoxious crowing of roosters waking my peers and me in the old broken, but caring, church. As I step outside the room above the chapel of the church into a warm outside world, my skin already becomes sticky with the horrendous humidity. Walking on the cracked cement, I have to dodge the puddles of mud that were formed from the rain the previous night. Carefully, I hike down to the bottom of the wet di

    Between 1530 and 1600, nearly four hundred enormous mission conventos and vistas were built and decorated with paintings and sculptural reliefs by skilled artisans in Mesoamerica.

These conventos and vistas were constructed to serve the purpose of providing appropriate settings where that Christian doctrine could be taught to millions of Indians that were suddenly under Spanish control and rule after the conquest of the Aztec empire in 1521.

    Greek Art & Archeology FA311 & CL219 Fall 2009 Term Paper The Erechtheion The location of the actual Erechtheion, as written about by Pausanias in his travels through Greece in the 2nd century A.D., is a hotly disputed topic amongst archeologists and historians. Pausanias left a detailed description of his visit to the Acropolis in Athens, yet a somewhat confusing one. After his description of the Parthenon, Pausanias describes monuments on the east end of the Acropolis, as he presumably walks north to the east side of the “so-called Erechtheion” (Wycherley, 150).
