Yes, it’s been almost a week since we departed, but this is my first moment with an internet connection. I don’t have much time at the moment, but wanted to say that we are here, we are happy and the food is “oh my God”. The weather has been consistent-rain-yes-rain and grey skies, but it’s still a beautiful place and we’re dealing with it. It brings back memories of my month at language school in Arezzo few years back-there were four days of sun in six weeks! I’m holding out hope for a little sun this trip.
We started in the countryside outside of Lucca (above photo) and now are in Piemonte at Baur B & B and it couldn’t be better. Off to one of Diana’s famous breakfasts! More later today.
