A Snap shot of Europe 2012

What can I say, but tres bien!

I went, I shopped, I ate, I toured, I laughed, I ate (oh yeah, said that), I drank, I saw handsome everything....
I have over a thousand photos, so here's a few!

some goodies from the flea marketing in France and Italy
 another view of my finds...
 sooooo much fun!
 we reunited with friends in Florence.
That's Jill Rockwell from Canada, and Sharlene Wall from Florida.
So much fun girls.
And my two traveling companions, Lurline and Fidela.
 parades in Florence...
 more eating in Florence...that's a vegetarian platter, yum!
 Orvieto, Italy
looking out of a museum window, on to the landscape, and the Duomo
 I think the Vatican...
 from Paris, a bus ride away to an Etruscan city, Fiesole...
 Orvieto, Italy alleyway...
 flea marketing in Florence...
 yes, the colosseum, Rome, Italy...
 Borghese Palace, Rome
 the Pantheon, Rome, where the artist Raphael was buried...
 the Vatican, outside...
 of course her highness, Miss Eiffel...
 and Maddie waiting for me to get back, pack up and head south for the winter!

I'll try to post more another time!
Getting ready to teach in Los Angeles next weekend, and still unpacking.  Finally getting over  a cold/flu from the long three week trip....worth it!!

Hope you are well. Drop a line.
love to all,
Riki
