Jack and Richard want to rent Vespas while I’m in class this week, so we found a place on the Internet and then drove way out on a white road to an Agriturismo where the guy collects old Vespas, the kind with a manual shift. The boys tried them out and are going to rent them Tuesday morning. I’m only posing. I’m excited about starting classes tomorrow. They start at 8:45 am and go until 1:10 pm, with breaks. I’m starting in the middle of an intermediate session, and there are only two other people in my class. I’m getting discouraged about learning Italian. I forget so many words. I’m good at ordering food and general pleasantries, but I can’t put sentences together very well. Oh, this last picture is Jack at lunch. We ate at Ai Quattro Venti (The Four Winds) after Mass in the Duomo. I understood a lot of it because we had a missal. We cook dinner at home in our apartment. The last two nights: caprese salad and pasta with pesto. And we bought a bottle of our favorite wine: Gattavecchi Vino Nobile. We all agree it’s the best we’ve tasted.
