One day, while painting on a shaded bench in Amalfi, we were joined by a group of school children. They were learning English and tried so hard to communicate. We ended up painting little pictures for each of them, per their requests. Snakes, bunnies, monsters, butterflies, etc. Some got smudged before they were dry, but they all seemed thrilled and we were happy to bring smiles to their beautiful faces. Their teacher gave us 7 euros and would not take it back, even though we protested.
