After a long flight we arrived in Verona to a very warm welcome.
We are visiting our former foreign exchange student/son/brother Zeno and out extended Italian family.
This is going to be a wonderful trip!

First meal at Sara, Roberto, Elia and Zeno’s house… now this is lunch!  I don’t think I forgot to photograph
anything.

When Zeno first had pizza in NYC he was quite diplomatic.  Eating  pizza in a beautiful outdoor
restaurant overlooking Verona makes you want to cry.
