Since I am making Mario Batali’s Ragu Bolognese I had Italy on the mind, so I went searching through my flash drives and found this picture of me hanging out in front of The Leaning Tower of Pisa. I know it does not look quite so leaning in this picture but it was I promise!
I visited Pisa in the summer of 2008 one a bus ride between Florence, Italy and Nice, France. While there was not much else to do besides see the tower and eat gelato I still find it fun to have been there. So many things are like that though, an attraction versus an experience on vacation can be tricky. I think if you go into it without too many expectations you will be happy for the little detours!
