Everyone that had pending deals waiting for me me to return, well, we can get them completed now.

Lee and I had a good time. Probably due to the fact that we didn't see much of each other as he likes guided tours and I don't. When I get my pics uploaded, I'll post a link in the Bull Pen area.

McDonalds was terrible and there wasn't a Burger King or Taco Bell to be found anywhere.

it is. The crust is more like a thin pita bread and the sauce is very thinly applied, but very flavourful. Usually it just comes with slices of motzerella cheese and some proscutto (ham), but you can other meats on it. The sauce has a great flavour. The tomatoes don't taste like anything in states. My guess is they are all vine rippened, so they get a chance to actually develope their true natural flavour. I'm not a big tomato fan and some of them on the food I got were a bot overpowering for my taste.

I had some really good fried calimari in Venice and some really good turkey kabobs in Rome. I would to know the spices they used. I never knew turkey meat good be that good. We also had a great meal in Florence, traditional Tuscany style food such as wild boar sausage, and dirt cheap relative to everywhere else we ate. my son and I had an appetizer, and 3 course meal for 38 euro. In Venice, we had just a 3 course meal that cost 40 euro and it wasn't nearly as good.

Edited to add: great Ruth quote Jay. 1k posts draws nearer! And the Italians taught the world how to eat! (uncle Jun from the Sopranos).

It's hobby related in that it was meant as a post to let people waiting on my return that I am back and we can finish up or start up pending deals. I was debating between here and the BP but took some liberties with putting it here.
