The Colosseum was quite impressive but I'm glad they banned animal fighting in AD523. I could smell all that slaughter in the air and it was quite terrifying!

Ottorino's Cantina/Cave in Sorrano.

We met up with Ottorino and he invited us to taste his wine. It has been aging two years in barrels down in his Cantina which is always kept at a constant temp of 12 degrees Celcius due to its depth in the earth. It felt a lot colder than that though!

Traipsing Around Sorano!

Sorano, Tuscany

In the background is the Tuscan town of Sorano where my friend Ivano has one of the original homes built into the side of the hill. This placed rocked the house. There are no cars allowed in the old city, so I could just run around off leash.

I met a minah bird that would call the preists name non-stop who happened to live up the alleyway. It seemed the only other word he knew was mamma.


Upon arrival in Orvieto, I was greated with Biscotti by my friend Ivano! Yummy!!!

Train to Tuscany

OK, the train to Orvieto in Tuscany wasn't as nice as the Eurostar but it was still a great ride!

Espresso and Art - Milan


Nice Ears!!!! Amore!

Leader of the Pack!

Travelling to Milan!

My train to Milan was on the super speedy Eurostar where I managed to score a seat by the window for myself!

Italian Holiday!!!

Sorry I haven't posted much lately. We've been looking for a new flat and that has pretty much consumed my time lately. I have to present my adorable mug to help weed out the competition in these fierce times of <1% rental vacancy rates!

On a brighter note, I'm off to Italy today for a week! This is my first trip to Italy. I hope I get the same reception I got in Barcelona when I ran into a group of Italian woman who basically mauled me! They were so sweet! I'm especially excited about marking all over St. Peters Square. Somebody's gotta do it!

Donna has assured me that I will get some time for la dolce vita in Tuscany. I'll post on my return!

Doggy "DIRT"!!

Apparently, this ad is designed to appeal to the dogowner's sense of ownership of public space, saying you wouldn't allow your dog to do his "business" in your home without cleaning it up, so don't allow it on the street. Judging by the amount of dog waste still on the sidewalks, I would have to say it's not working.


My holiday at Snoopy's was great but now I need some serious snoozing action!
