Subject: Info for Trip to Italy
Hello Ziner Friends,

I have an opportunity to go to Monasterolo, Italy, as part of a "sister city" group, with a group from the Dallas area. A longtime friend of mine is part of the group and has invited me to go along. You stay in a private home, hosted by one of the members of the Italian group. The group from Monasterolo (near Turin) was here last year, and they alternate. I know it's in the NW corner of Italy, not far from the French border, which makes it fairly close to the lakes, which I love. It seems too good a chance to pass up -- mainly air fare and a few meals and event tickets.

I'll search the archives and Linda and Don's travelogues, but if someone is familiar with the area, particularly the town, I'd love to know more about it. I'll have to dig out my language course and practice my "buon giornos." Mixed with my southern accent, they still won't understand a thing I say.

Happy travels to all, Lou in Lakeway, TX
