Gelato sounds good right now

Some people prepare for a big trip abroad by studying guide books or printing out maps of the airport.  Not my friend Bob Rini. He’s heading to Italy in a few weeks and, as he says, he’s been “soaking up Italian art and history like bread soaks up olive oil.”

From the looks of some of his recent blog postings at the Nine Pound Hammer, he’s also gearing up for some serious immersion adventures.
