I'm afraid I've been an absentee blogger for the past several days -- I've been in my beloved Umbria and have had a fantastic time there. I couldn't find an Internet point (although I didn't try very hard -- I was too busy buying new tapestries, ceramics and soaking up the fantastic atmosphere there!)
Alas, I've run out of money and so I have to return to the work-a-day world. Plus, I seem to have cracked a tooth and am in incredible pain, so I'll be making a beeline for my dentist Thursday morning.
I'm now here in Rome, making a quick Internet stop. I consulted a pharmacist here who assured me a painkiller called Panadol is identical to North America's Advil and won't trigger my asthma (as almost all painkillers do.)
If she is wrong and this is my last blog post, I want to be cremated with my new ceramics! (Okay, that wasn't very funny But I am in a lot of pain.)
I've collected so much great blog material and photos to use in the coming days, that I don't dare quit the blogging world just yet!
More to come......
