Bella Italia!

Monica's recent trip to Germany and Italy provided opportunities for hiking, cooking and, evidently, drinking very large mugs of beer! The first photo is Monica at the Coliseum in Rome. The second is a view while hiking Cinque Terre - centuries old villages, and spectacular views. The third is Wine tasting in the Chianti region of Tuscany - vineyards are dry farmed - wonderful wines paired with locally made cheeses, salamis, bruschetta, 15 year aged balsamic vinegars..... it was an amazing afternoon. The fourth photo is Monica at Octoberfest, Munich, Germany.
