Modena and Bologna and Bologna/Modena

On Sunday we went to Modena. James asked for some balsamic vinegar and so we decided to get him the real thing. The city is beautiful and there is a beautiful church in the square – it is a world heritage site. We climbed the tower – Ghirlandina. We also had a look at the Ferrari museum and thought of Alistair and Judy. This morning, I climbed Bologna’s tower for the second time with Martin. It is high!!! We have been resting this afternoon and are off to Florence tomorrow for 2 days. We have just heard that Beppe and Vera will be here on Thursday and Friday, and Rosie and her family arrive on Saturday. I can’t wait to see them all. I really love this city full of porticoes!

Sunday afternoon we went to Modena. James wanted the balsamic vinegar and wanted to buy the real thing. The city is beautiful and there's a beautiful Cathedral in the square – a world heritage site. We climbed the Ghirlandina Tower and we even saw the Ferrari Museum and I thought about Alistair and Judy. This morning I climbed the Tower in Bologna for the second time with Martin ... Mamma mia. We took a NAP this afternoon. We will go to Florence tomorrow and Wednesday and we just heard that Beppe and Vera are Thursday and Friday. Rosie and her family arrive Saturday. I can't wait to see them again! I love this city and its arcades.
