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.

At about 7:30pm we headed for Piazza Maggiore but about half way there saw a sign to Ristorarte Bolognese so we went there. The place had a family from Mexico ...

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 ...
