Last Night in Italy

Tomorrow we head back to Dublin after an amazing week in Italy. Looking out the window just now, Bill observed many people walking by eating gelato. Gelato is one of the great things about Italy. That, and truffle dogs, vin santo, wild boar, beauty, history, olive trees, friendly cats, cheese, leather, cured meats, marble, red wine, paintings, cathedrals, lardo, espresso and towers leaning and otherwise. Everyone should come to Tuscany. Now! (Based on the number of American accents I've heard in Florence, many of you have!)

Check back for our accounts of Pisa, Lucca, Montaione, and Florence.
