gradisco voi di più e più

Tomorrow I leave for ROME!

Oh hey guys.

It's 8:30 pm and I still haven't started to pack. I always do this. Long plane rides and airports are among my least favorite things, but I'm excited to get there.

I am really down to go to the Cappuchin Crypt. It's a tiny area beneath the Santa Maria della Immacolata Concezione church in which the walls are decorated with the bones of over 4,000 Cappuchin monks. There's even a Crypt of the Skulls with flower shapes formed with skulls and wings made out of shoulder blades. Creepy!

After Rome we catch an old-fashioned train to Venice. My dad is very excited about this (the train, not Venice). Then we go to Lake Como.

Fly home from Switzerland on the 2nd. My dad says pack big coats for the alps. Will it be snowy?, I ask--Really snowy? Will there be Saint Bernard dogs? Can I pet them?

How am I supposed to know?, says Dad. Just bring a sweater.

Let me know if you'll be in Europe at the same time. Otherwise: andiamo!
