Is it the food in Italy or the women clad in incredibly short shorts?  Between the two, I may never leave.  On the food front, which is the only thing I’m allowed to discuss by my long legged traveling companion (aka wife of 48 years), the Italians seem have it right.  You look at the stores and you want to cook.  Enjoy these shots and click on them for a close-up view:

Finally, I have always been fascinated by nice tomatoes.  I watched a farmer deliver these to a little store and couldn’t resist taking a shot.

Phenomenal journey of Italian food! My favorites are the ones with the spice bags and pasta in a basket! Fresh food and gelato…that’s just the way it should be!
