i arrived in verona, italy just a few hours ago. beautiful city with a great arena. i believe it’s the third largest in italy. that whole romeo and juliet stuff is a bunch of crap though. while there really was a feuding capulet and a montague family, there never was a juliet or a romeo. they even built a balcony around 1920 to lure the tourists in. smart italians. i’m having dinner somewhere, picking up my girl at the airport, and then driving about thirty miles to lake garda to spend the weekend, probably making a day trip or two back to verona before heading over to vicenza.
