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.

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.

I imagine the entire trip will go something like this:
