Thanks - and greetings to a fellow alum. Believe it or not, I just returned from Italy about four days ago. I went for a vacation with my wife, not to gig. But I'd love to go back sometime. It's a beautiful place.
The weather was mostly good, with rain just the past few days. We spent four days in Florence, four days in Rome, three days in Venice and three days in Cinque Terra. The food was amazing and the sights were astounding. Where in Italy do you live?
I live in Milano but outside of town so it's more peaceful and no traffic jam. You saw the best of Italy...did you use Rick Steve's book by any chance....I remember I told you to buy it a year ago when I bought 2 of your cds from you. I'm asking because Cinque Terre is R.S. favorite.
Nice to hear from you. I may try to get back to Winfield in '09 when I can compete again. I'll see if I still feel young enough to do it by then. Y'all watch out for tornadoes down there.
