Geodes Italian Style

When the Stoic One and I were in Arizona, we picked up to geodes to bring to Italy for our young friends.  A geode is a rock that is hollow inside but will often have an interesting crystal formation.  The boys are always in trouble for breaking things, so I thought this was a great opportunity for them to take a hammer and whack something.  It was hilarious and caused quite a stir.  The nuns who live in the building next to Antonietta had to come out and see what we were doing.

Barbara, the mama, finally took over and cracked the rocks open.  I can only imagine the blogs the Italians could write about crazy American presents!
