Washington DC

I had a meeting at the British Embassy in DC last week so I drove down from Connecticut for an overnight. The Brits are so nice! The building is on embassy row (Massachusetts Ave). That motorcade was Joe Biden leaving his residence at the US Naval Observatory next to the Brit embassy. I didnt get a very good picture but it was a bit chaotic.

I didn’t realize that the reflecting pool was ripped up a year ago for rebuilding.

I haven’t been to DC since 1989 and so the world war II monuments were new to me. One of the states I took a picture of is where I will be moving to on Oct 28. More about that later.

Montepulciano

Nice town though the second time through it was a bit touristy. Apparently a few scenes from New Moon the Twilight series were filmed here.

Food!

That strange meat is carne cruda…raw cow freshly chopped, peppered and olive oiled. The rest are pastas the owner of a restaurant down the street started bringing out.

Alba Region

Unbelievable food, wine, b&b and calm found in this region. Next visit to Italy I will not go anywhere else. My third and best visit to this region of Slow Food HQ.

Pisa

This is my third visit to Italy but my first to Pisa. I thought it would be awful but for the few hours we were there on our way to Alba it was interesting and the people were nice.
