Back on the Ground

I’ve been away for a few weeks touring the western Mediterranean.  Stops included Barcelona, Marseilles, Monaco, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Corsica, Gibraltar, and Tangier.  Photos of the trip are here on my Picasa site.

Highlights?  Relaxing on the French Riviera.  Touring the sites of Rome like the Pantheon and St. Peter’s Basilica.  Verifying that the Leaning Tower actually leans.  Stopping for a photo-op with the “apes” atop the cliffs of Gibraltar.  Walking the narrow streets of Tetouan.  Spending a couple of days soaking up Barcelona, including the simply astonishing Sagrada Familia.

But the best part was spending two weeks with a couple of dear friends, my CWSS compatriots Russell Lutz and David Gaw.

Good times.
