I loved the time I spent in Vicenza with the 173rd Airborne.

The trouble with Europe is there're too many foreigners & everything tastes like chicken - except the chicken!

Have a good time, & all kidding aside enjoy the really good food.

Good luck on your Italian trip Snips, Italian Food is great, beer ok, and women look good, but most are very hard to talk to... just pay loads of complements, give the impression you have loadz of money and are willing to spend the majority of it on them... You will do well in Italy bro!!.. Gauranteed!!....

HAHA Beer is good, the vino is better. The grand scale of everything is what impresses me most. I'm in Florence now, tomorrow I look at the de Medicci's art collection.

I head to Pisa then Turin then Rome.

I'll keep you guys in the loop.
