    Today, we went to a beautiful home I Modena where they produce Balsamuc Vinegar over many years. We tasted 7 vinegars that were aged from 15-25 years. They were so unique with subtle differences. They dont sell to shops, but freight to anywhere in the world.

    Ummm, needless to say I bought some.

    Here's some history from the family ...

    ... being tortured in hell so there have been a couple of attempts to blow it up and security is obvious. The cathedral claims to be one of the most beautiful in Europe. Its nice but it is not particularly outstanding amongst the many we have seen.

We finished off with a lemon sorbet that I suspect had cream in it. Delicious.
    After lunch Fede dropped us ...

    ... squares of green lasagne sheets at angles to each other with a creamy béchamel sauce and a very meaty bolognese sauce between each layer and then the whole was finished by being put under a grill. Very soft and very tasty. We shared a pannacotta for dessert that was made with egg white and baked rather than the traditional setting with gelatine. This made it less wobbly and more smooth and creamy than usual. The restaurant was like an up market ...

    NOTE: We are on the sixth day of our trip now and I am just now slowing down enough to catch up on TravelPod entries. So, even though we are now in Florence, Italy, you will be receiving entries from earlier in our trip. I will try to send 1-2 entries each day until I am current. Monday, May 11th: Our overnight flight (Sunday night into Monday) went fairly smooth. As usual, we were not able to sleep much while in flight. Once the sun came up, we saw some ...
