A Break from the Daily Grind

I just spent the last 5 days traveling by car to Italy, returning home via Interlaken and Bern, Switzerland. So no LHC, no CMS last week.

Since there were four of us, my husband’s parents, my husband and myself, we drove together to visit friends that are currently in Modena, Italy. Not many folks make it to Modena, the home of Balsamic Vinegar, Pavarotti – with Ferrari and Maserati nearby. The little city was lovely and not too crowded. I learned a few new ways to use balsamico, one novel way is to eat vanilla ice cream with old (sweet) balsamico. Yummy. My favorite included my favorite cheese, parmigiano reggiano (parmesan) drizzled with balsamico. Well, I came back with a nice hunk, and four bottles of vinegar – I felt like a vinegar smuggler, since we crossed two borders on the way back.

We made day trips to Florence and Verona, and drove back via Switzerland – going up to Interlaken and Bern. All was a lot of fun. I am grateful that I get to live here and do things like this.
