Arrivederci, l'internet! Ciao, la vacanza!
I have no idea if that’s correct Italian, but what’s it matter? I’m not much in the mood for correctness now that my vacation is less than 24 hours away. Tomorrow evening I’m off to Florence for my first real vacation in two years—and my first trip to Europe since my four months abroad in the spring of 2001.
This vacation has been evolving for over a year. First it was to be the Croatian coast (too many moving parts), then Istanbul for Pascha (no more decent churches), then Belgrade (host’s plans fell through). One day I’ll get to all those places, but the next ten days are all about Italy.
So I’ll assume I won’t have the ability to post until I’m back in Boston on May 7. But if I am, expect links to new photographs and perhaps some more grainy videos. The friend with whom I’m staying knows some pretty interesting folks, so my hope is that one or more of them have some idea of what young Italians write about nowadays.
