Back to Reality.....

The Andrea Bocelli concert in Tuscany was outdoor theatre, set in the countryside....I'm still smiling!  Rome was HOT but wonderful....I am still processing all that I saw and did...wonderful, welcoming B&B in Rome....scrambling and just making the train to Florence...driving through the Tuscan countryside where every turn brought a new feast for my eyes...riding horses in Chianti...and rediscovering my "sit bones"...revisiting Michelangelo's "Pieta" in St. Peter's Bascilica.... and his "David" in Florence...lovely B&B in Florence....getting lost at night in the maze of small streets there and taking a cab "home"...putting my toes in the Tyrrhenian Sea...trying new foods and liking most of them (NOT the wild boar...)....My sis is the photographer, and am waiting on receiving her pics in order to share all of the beauty that surrounded us.....Met wonderful people.....ended up having to stay in Montreal for a night as my plane was late....all part of the adventure!  It is good to be daughter and  her family surprised me by coming to stay for this, it's back to business as usual...but I am sifting through and savoring my memories!
