Buongiorno

Well, I’m off to Italy for a few weeks.  Leaving this afternoon.  In about 30 hours from now, I expect I’ll be sauntering through the Piazza Navona with my group, gelato in hand.

Can’t wait.

While I hope to write a few blog posts over there, there’ll be much more frequent stuff (pics, mostly) appearing on facebook, if you want to check where we’ve been occasionally.  Find that here, or by searching facebook.com/thegardenist.
