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.
