Now that’s funny. I knew that we culture-starved Americans borrowed everyone else’s festivals, but I didn’t realize other folks borrowed ours. …Well, except for Pizza Cowboy in Guidonia.
Everywhere we’ve traveled since Dario and I bought our Vibram FiveFingers shoes, people ask Dario about them (I only wear mine occasionally). I mean, really, it’s surprising how many people stare and ask! So I[…]
Eggs, fake bacon, toast, cranberry jam from Bandon, OR, and fruit juice. At 3 a.m. Next time remind me to return to Europe via China.
16+ hours of flight time and we are back in Rome. Nap time is calling.
Dario feeds the lorikeets. Sooo cute – the birds, too! ;)
Pith helmet + cheetah = AWESOME! Dario and I went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park today. They were selling pith helmets. We simply had to buy a matching pair. Now our tour[…]
Sister Agnes calendar! Dario is on the December page TWICE! I’m on there once and one of my pictures is in there. WOOHOO! GO, SISTER AGNES! :D

Coneflower along trail. Much more cooperative than deer. Stupid deer.
Mule deer (I think) along the trail. Oh, we were SO excited! Too bad the deer wasn’t as excited to see us. Absolutely refused to pose. Drat! We should have remembered the go-to call[…]
8 Aug. 2010 Napa, CA, USA A quick day trip for winetasting and visiting friends! We stayed with my friend, Charlotte, in Marin County and dragged her along when we went to visit Emily[…]
