Italia 2004 — April 10-13

Italia Home, Next (April 14 and Misc)

Saturday, April 10, Sunday the 11th (Easter), Monday and Tuesday 12th and 13th were wonderful days spent with our host families.  Ornella, Fabrizio, Natalia and Giorgia were amazing hosts.  We enjoyed so many wonderful meals (mange e bevere?).

They took Terry Lynn and I to the Ligurian coast, to Ceriali, where Ornella’s mom lived.  We met Fabrizio’s mother at the foot of the Alps.  We visited with Ornella’s friend’s family in the lake region (Lago Maggiore?)

We were really sad when it came time to leave these wonderful people.

Il caldo--espesso-- delicioso
