Let's Catch Up...

I spent eight days in Chicago visiting friends (including one who was in the hospital), family (including my parents who were on their way back to Canada from Florida), overeating, shopping, etc.

Back in Basel on a Thursday...and an early Cinco de Mayo party on a Saturday. My bro-in-law and sis-in-law arrived from Chicago on Saturday evening at about 5:30. Our party began at 7:30. They had hardly slept during their flights. They ended up going to bed at about 2:30 a.m. Aren't we mean?

Two days ago, the four of us left for Italy. We took the train to Milan, and we spent one night there. Yesterday, we took the train from Milan to Venice. This is the view from our hotel room. We've been here one night. So far, so good. I'll let you know how things go.

There...all caught up!

Hey, aren't you guys staying at The Bauer? If so, I hope Roberta and Lucia still work in the breakfast room. They sang Italian childrens' songs to our daughter every morning when we stayed there last Christmas and generally doted on her in every way possible.

Kirk - Yes, we are staying at the Bauer Hotel. However, I didn't hear any singing waitresses. I guess I was too focused on the breakfast sausages.
