Could there possibly be a better way to start your day than a 'cornetto' filled with Sicilian pistachio cream and a perfect espresso? I think not.
A rainy weekend in Rome enjoying all of the 'eternal' city's little pleasures. Jostling for an espresso. Wandering down ancient alleyways. Slowing down enough to appreciate 'la dolce vita'. Next stop...Palermo to visit my family. A presto!
Today was spent at the World Expo in Milan today to explore the pavilions from around the world, see what's happening in the world of 'Slow Food' and attend a gala dinner tonight featuring chefs from all over Italy. Feel so lucky that I got to experience this. Now it's off to bed and then to Valpolicella in the morning!
