Italy, again.....


in Rome...
doesn't this just invite you to come in?







Bottega Veneto
ahhhh, this skirt





something to wear in Italy




Marettimo, Italy
an island West of Sicily
it's about an hour from the mainland










in all my visits to Italy I've made friends with shopkeepers, bar owners,
car drivers, tour operators, and  priests.

once you realize the geography of Italy you understand the history so much better.

my son & his friend climbed to the top of Mt. Vesuvius (I didn't) early early early one morning,
long before the tourists arrived.
he said the view to the sea was beautiful and well worth the climb.

Beautiful Italy. Do you speak any Italian? It sounds like you were able to function and communicate well.
