    Scot, is the sky always that blue? That is a sight for sore eyes to this Chicagoan.

  • You’ll have to go down to Alberobello in Southern Italy and see the Trulli Houses some time. It’s quite a quaint little town and very unique. http://www.sitiunesco.it/index.phtml?id=537 I loved my time spent there.
