Clarissa McDaniel (left) works as an Academy Ambassador in the Welcome Center. On Friday at noon she was to take the Wizard and I on a tour to the top of the Tower so that we could judge the quality of her guiding. As we held the door open for two strangers as they were leaving the Welcome Center, we asked if they might like to join us. Eli Canstanho and Alessandra Ferreira are both from Brazil. Alessandra lives in the US now and will get married at Chapel Dulcinea this fall. Eli, her cousin, is visiting from Sao Paulo. The wizard snapped a photo of them standing in the Becauseway beneath the feet of Ozment the lion. Although I am standing in front of them, I was too short to be in the photo. It never occurred to the wizard to give me time to climb up to the rock shelf to that I could be in the picture, too. (sigh) – Indy Beagle
PS – Clarissa performed extremely well as a tour guide.
