Thursday, June 11: Last Day in Bologna

We returned home very late last night, but true friends that we are, we were up at 4:15 a.m. to see Sandi off for her EARLY flight home. Jerry even schlepped her luggage downstairs, and I got her a taxi! After only three hours of sleep, I couldn't go back to sleep, so it was a perfect time to quietly pack.

By 6, Jerry and I were having coffee and blogging. I then had three hours of my LAST LESSON. Andrea gave me two lovely Italian cookbooks as a good-bye gift. I felt retarded and brain-dead speaking Italian this morning, but I have learned SO much!

Jerry and I had a quick lunch and then a nice two-hour nap! JUST what I needed!

Yesterday was SUCH a blast!!

I had a long visit with over coffee with Ida and Ada before our morning market tour.

The GTG was lots of fun, and we enjoyed wonderful food at Al Sangiovese.

Our cooking class was SO much fun:

Our last evening, we had dinner at Ristorante "da Nello" with Marcia, David, Jan and Ken. The food was great! I had a half order of tortellini in a cream sauce with a splash of ragu Bolognese, and a delicious veal chop. Boy, have I eaten well in Bologna!

It's been so much fun reading about your stay in Bologna. And it is so awesome that you had so many friends there! Love the smilebox, I want to make those stuffed zucchini!

Your sfoglia looks great!
