Sunny Italy

Okay this in no way compares with what my friend Dora is dealing with in Virginia but just to dispel all those images from Sleepless in Siena or whatever those gushy novels about the eternal Italian sunshine of romantic minds are called, here's a few photos of the countryside between Bologna and Parma. They were taken Saturday morning from the train.



And it was cold this morning in Parma - definitely sweater, gloves, scarf and hat weather - and I'm sorry but as far as I'm concerned +5c is cold!

Got to be better than all that winter fog in the Po valley - and I've given up coming to walk before late spring; it can rain and rain in March or April, can't it?

You still have to tell me where that cafe is located that's supposed to serve better coffee than the Tazza d'Oro...

I'd rather be in that snow that the 33" we got walloped with. I'm pretty well ready for winter to be done with. As in now.
