I went to Bella Italia, and it was the best vacation of my 57 years on the planet. My wife met me at the end, and we went to Cinque Terre for the next few days. We went to Florence on Tuesday to be close to the airport for a Wednesday flight to Beijing, PRC. Beijing is awesome, quite exotic and really spread out. What they seem to lack are scooters. There are a gozillion electric bicycles, and some scoots, but not that many, and I have yet to see a Vespa. Anyway, after this, we go to Japan and Korea, then home mid October. I will really be ready for a nice long fall ride by then!
