Arezzo i Lucca

Thank you for coming in our airbnb in Tuscany. Cappannelle Holiday House. Marusca

Gluten Free by Me

The second half of our journey took us to the Province of Siena. Which I have to admit was my favourite! I can not put my finger on what exactly made this province magical but I instantly felt at home.

Our airbnb was located in Castiglion Fibocchi, which is a quaint little town but did not offer much in the way of dining options. So we took a 20 min drive to the old medieval town of Arezzo. I was amazed to find not 1 but gluten-free restaurants here! We chose to go to Miva due to the centrality of its location. Being as it was dark we did not want to traverse the winding cobblestone streets and not find our way back to the car!

The gluten-free menu consists of pasta, risotto, and meat dishes. They further have gluten free beer on the menu should you have reached your wine fill!…

Prologue to my blog

va vis deviens

(Yes, my blog has a prologue.)

I wrote these few initial entries when I first arrived in Addis Ababa.  However, severe internet challenges and the business of starting a new life have delayed me from posting them. Until now, almost five months after my arrival.

First though, why I want to write a blog:

I know everyone has been concerned about me, concerned about us.  We received such an outpouring of support and love from family and friends.  In the saddest of times, life can be at its most beautiful.

I know writing helped me through the last six months I spent in the U.S.  I would like to see if it will help me live the next two years more fully.  I cannot promise that I will keep it up, but I am going to try.

As if to further remind me of the power of writing, I attended…
