I keep thinking of Dorothy’s line from the Wizard of Oz, “People here seem to come and go so quickly.” Seems that we were just settling in, and having fun with our Montonese-Portland friends, when it was time for them to head back to Portland.
A last cappuccino on the deck of the Aries Bar, and off they went! And again, I’m thinking about roots. There is just something about Montone that gets under your skin, the more time that you spend here, the harder it is to leave.
Jody & Tom: Buon viaggio! Safe travels! And we look forward to your coming back to Montone!
Tom, in your honor, we ate some gelato and dedicated it to you. (No really, it wasn’t an excuse just to eat gelato….) Speriamo ci vediamo a presto!
