Ben was the best man at our wedding and because he and Aaron went to college together, I've known Ben as long as I've known Aaron. He met Kate in med school and they now live in Indianapolis with their three kids (the oldest of whom is our godson).
|Ben, Kate, Aaron and me having lunch|
|Lucca is a walled city; you can walk on top of the walls.|
|Lucca was the home of composer Giacomo Puccini, and "Turandot" is Aaron's favorite Puccini opera, |
so we had to have our picture in front of the Turandot Caffe!
|Some street scenes in Lucca. You can barely see the sandals that I'm wearing , |
but I bought those that day (and still have them)
|Meanwhile, whatever the rest of our group was doing, it involved ALL of them taking a picture of this.|
|...and it also involved filling wine jugs at the hardware store. Yep, you read that right. |
You'll have to come back again for more on that story.
Next week: Cinque Terre!
