The summer of 2010 was very hot in Florida and my friend Martin invited me to visit his new house in Northern Italy. Here are some of the photos I took on the visit.

Martinís family was there along with a lot of Italian friends.

I enjoyed staying in Cairo-MonteNotte for a week.

The place has a long history and great food.

The house is big and has a swimming pool. Martinís daughter and her friends had a blast but I thought the water was cold!

Martin loaned me his car to drive to town and explore the local village.

What a place. I canít wait to go back.
