Hello everyone....
It's been very hot here in the last few days. Last night we went to a festa in a small town nearby. Lots of lights and bands playing star wars and godfather music. We have developed an addiction to monopoly pinball at the local arcade. We are going to hit the beach right away and will post more pictures tommorow or the day after.

Location: Otranto, Italy

Hello everyone,
We made it back safely from Rome and Tivoli. The driving is crazy here!!! Couldn't stop in pompei because the mafia is closeby in Naples and apparently its dangerous for tourists. Rome was nice...long day though. We hired a private driver that took us everywhere..even to the gigantic mall. Tivoli was nice...had dinner with family. One of them is the long lost twin of Luigi off of super mario. He just needs a green jumpsuit. Now we are just going to relax on the beach.

Ciao tutti!
Our italian is slowly getting better. Tommorow we are heading off to Rome. I think we are going to make stops in Tivoli, pompei and possibly take the train to Florence. Today was a scorcher and we spent the afternoon on the beach. Anyways, getting tired, our routine has been 3hr naps in the afternoon and to bed by 9:30. Haha we are nonnas!!!
We will post more pictures when we get back from rome on wednesday night. we promise that there will be some hot bikini beach shots.

Tuesday, 11 July 2006

Location: Otranto, Italy

So Italy won the world cup the other night and it was pretty crazy here. Not quite like whyte ave though. Instead of flashing, breaking random things and climbing on light poles there was fireworks and lots lots of dancing. They had a pretty rad parade too! Everyone just drove down the street with their cars honking and then there was a construction crane that lifted the italian flag. Haha. Nonna has calmed down a bit and has gone to visit some sisters\relatives in Maglie. Today we are heading off to the beach for some rays. We are heading to rome and pompei later on this week for a few days. Trish is doing well in her quest to try all of the flavors of gelato...only like 25 more to try!
Anyways...we are trying to put some pics up right away but are having problems with the computers...soon soon.
Talk to you later

Hey Ash!!!!!!!
Sounds like you're having a blast! We are all jealous, bring us gifts to make up for it! (JJ) Mandy called yesterday to say that she heard the babies heartbeat and Jason missed it. He booked off the ultra sound so he won't be in the dog house. Krysia and I went to Costco again and managed to spend under a $100 but then the next day she brought in a pair of jeans that she ordered from ebay that didn't fit her and got me hooked on them. So now I'm 85 dollars poorer. There really nice jeans though, I can't remember the designer though. Anyway I'll chat with you again and keep on having a great vacation!!!!!!!!!!!

Response: hey there,
thats awesome about the jeans...send some my way.
From Krysia
How lucky are you??!!! What a beautiful place to spend an entire month. You deserve it girl. Party it up and enjoy every ray of sunshine, every taste of gelato and every sound of the bustling excitement around you. Thanks for keeping us posted and continue with the pics, they're good for day dreaming. . . . . Wow I am in desperate need of a holiday.

Luv ya,
