At'samatta for you, uh? You got a no respect?

I believe I mentioned in a previous entry that I was going to Italy for the first week in April.
Well, I'm flying out tomorrow night.

I've been meaning to go back to Italia for years. I was there for two weeks in June 1999, and have always wanted to return. All of my across-the-pond trips over the past several years have been to England, of course, because I have friends there as well as contacts for poetry gigs. This year, I'm going to see if I can fit both trips in...

And now the Leaning Tower is open again.
When I was in Pisa the last time, the tower was closed to the public, and there were giant weights on one side and wires attached, trying to stabilize the lean. I got photos, but that's about it.

I'll be in Rome for a few days, then up to Pisa, Florence if there's time (it's close to Pisa), and Venice for the last two days. Pasta, pizza and gelato will be enjoyed.

I imagine the entire trip will go something like this:


Don't forget your dark glasses.
Si, si, signora.

There is a sandwich place in Florence that I love so much. Those sandwiches haunt my dreams.
