Never got it.
Yes, I suspected so. But now I have a better internet
connection, at least for a couple days.
The hoped for one-hour drive from Linate to Parma
didn't quite work out, as we were half way to
Parma before we actually found the autostrada...
I was navigating by compass (which ultimately
works, but incrementally).
Ya know...maps work quite well.
Right. My excuse is, while we bought a brand new map
of central Italy while we were in London, it does not
go as far north as Parma or Milan, and I figured I
could get by with a 20-year-old Michelin map of that
area. Clearly, roads and autostradas (autostrade?)
have moved around considerably in the intervening length
Now that we're on the newer map I'm much less disoriented. :-)
Take pictures of the food, etc.
Jot down what you ate at these multi-course meals.. I don't know if
anyone else is interested, but I sure am!!
Thanks. I hope to upload some photos very soon.
I am bringing a lot of my Italian cookbooks to the bay area, so
Italian food will be cooked and eaten a lot. Even if I can't get to
Italy now, I can at least eat like an Italian. And Kermit Lynch has
some great values on Italian wines now. Will be getting a case or
This sounds like a plan!
