There is No Escape

We are enjoying a long-awaited return to Italy.

Italy 6.13 010So naturally, the first thing I saw outside our hotel in Rome was a television reporter and his crew taping a stand-up.

He’s the Italian Jeff Saperstone, because it turned out the hotel is right next to the Parliament building, and yes, Parliament was in session.  We never had to worry about security.

And when we moved north to Umbria, this was in the center of Montone, the first village we visited.  If anyone called it “The Weather Center,” my brain might have broken on the spot.

Italy 6.13 175Just like home, all most people wanted to talk about was how miserable the weather had been in May and the first part of June.  I wanted to say, “We begin this conversation with a weather alert!”

“You brought the good weather with you!”

Well, no, but if you insist.

So there’s your news and weather from Italy.  No sports.  At least, not yet.

Ciao for now.
