hard to see, but there's me, looking like a giant, bald freckle, and the absolutely delightful Trina Merry without whom many of my life's adventures would not have been possible, and sprawling behind us is the beautiful city of Florence. It was good to us. Click da pic for a look at some of my other adventures with this incredible artist!
How else could a day start with an egregiously overpriced cab ride and a smelly, crowded, baby-fueled, (did I mention smelly??), early-ass, international flight, followed by three hours of misdirections, miscommunications, and dragging the world's heaviest suitcase through the cobble-stoned streets of central Florence, resulting in many tears in an Italian post-office, and ultimately spending roughly the same on cab fare as I would have if I had avoided all of that to begin with, still end with seeing the sights and sounds of Italy, being painted completely nude in the gardens surrounding a gorgeous, historic Italian villa, to the admiration, curiosity and genuine support of a dozen incredible, talented, female artists from across the world, only to be rewarded with one of the most decadent, mostly-vegan meals of my life,* all capped with a good, cheap, unforgettable bottle of local, white wine?
And all of you. Thank you.
And then some. (Shhhhh, please don't tell youtube about the nips! only you guys have the link to this vid!)
** Check out L'ortone on facebook - for anyone in or traveling to Florence, I cannot say enough good things about this place. The evening ended with tequila shots with the owner. Salute!
