Ciao, Amici!

Did you miss me? We spent 10 glorious days on vacation in Italy!

I took over 2100 photos that will take me quite a while to sort through and edit. I'm planning a few blog posts focusing on specific topics like food and artistry. (Are we bloggers required to photograph our food before we eat it?)

Today, the basics of our itinerary:

Venice

Florence

Pisa

The Vatican

Rome

Now, I need to batten down the hatches before Hurricane Irene arrives. We should see some rain, wind gusts and storm surge along the coast. We live far enough inland that we don't need to evacuate, but we expect to lose power. Hope to see you soon.

This looks like a fantastic, wonderful trip--can't wait to read more! Thoughts and prayers with Hurricane Irene--her eye is expected to go right over us. Take care!

Take care and good luck with the storm. After the power comes back on and you've confirmed everything is OK, I can't wait to read more about your Italian vacation. Firenze is one of my all time favorite places.
