After years of pleading, I relented to Connie’s wish to go to Italy for her Birthday. Of course, it was just a coincidence that the Formula 1 race in Monza was taking place that week. So, off to Italy we went....staying a few days in Varenna on Lake Como so I could attend the race, then on to the Italian Riviera and Sestri Levante for the balance of the trip. I must admit, we had a fabulous time!
