Ciao Readers! I have to admit, I've been hard-pressed for inspiration for a new blog post since my gallbladder removal. Some of the rejected ideas I've had include "Gallbladders and Other Extraneous Organs," "The View from My Couch (a photo anthology)," and "Chicken Broth and Other Boring Recipes."

So, please come along and reminisce with me about the wonderful truffle festival held every November in a nifty little Tuscan town....

Then walked some more!

Sunday I promptly rolled out of bed at 10:45 after snoozing my alarm as much as I could allow.  Got ready and quickly ate breakfast before crossing the Piazza del Duomo (yes my apartment is practically on the piazza!) to get over to the school center for our hike up to Piazzale Michelangelo today.  179 altre parole
