August 31

Today marks the 66% completion point.  Eight months down, four to go.

Enough talk, lets go to Venice!

Sam could not resist licorice.  I am surprised he gave me a taste.

We had an adventure asking locals for a non-touristic restaurant to eat.
We could not follow directions of the gentleman who ran the wine shop.
I think he was drinking profits.  However a local undertaker steered us to an amazing
family run place.  Pasta putenesca, bacaloa, and sardines with polenta… not to mention
wonderful conversation!

Gelato in the train station, a taste of a coffee ice drink on the train.

Maria turned 11.  She made the tiramisu herself.  Now I know
why the Riggio’s are such incredible cooks!
