I had a wonderful meal last night at Trattoria Giovanni in the Oltrarno, close to Piazza Santa Spirito. Our guests were taking us out, and I had a special crostini to start with a cream / white truffle paste on top. Really, quite awesome. Last time I was there a friend had a large piece of veal which he loved, and I was jealous that I had not ordered. I did not make the same mistake twice, and really enjoyed the quite large and very tasty vitello. Italian phrases - crostini (small toasted tuscan bread pieces with interesting toppings), vitello (veal), and interrutore (circuit breaker). Ciao.
Not too many leaves left on the vines behind the olive trees here.
A beautiful little road and some nice color below a villa.
I loved the look of the sky today, as I assumed the storm was going
away, as tomorrow's forecast is for good weather. I was surprised
by a downpour later this afternoon as Emily and I were picking
up the grandchildren from school.
