(S) Not even kidding, I report to you live from Monte Carlo. Ya, Monaco. Of course we are behind and it's actually the 10th but needed to let you all know we're still alive (we'll do a few entries from the last few days and also try to backfill the ones we missed in Italy because there are a lot - and some great pictures). I'm on a french keyboard so things get interesting. Anyway - as luck would have it, we are living for free in an apartment overlooking the ocean in Cap d'Ail, France, smack in the middle of the French Riviera.

We'd like to apologize for a lack of correspondence, both on travelblog updates and even personal e-mails. We have been without internet for 10 days. It would seem Italy is much more technologically advanced than the south of France. Or maybe the people that live or vacation here have people who check their email for them. Or they just don't care. It's also been a bit of a shock to not have wireless in our apartment. Our Italian landlady was genius with that.

But onward...

With heavy hearts we left our wonderful little house in Firenze and drove to Monaco on April 1. We had dinner with my cousin who lives here that night, and who incidentally is allowing us to use his studio apartment. What a deal!

Yes, we do actually do our grocery shopping in Monte Carlo. Who doesn't really. It's nice to be in a place which sells cheddar cheese again - and the bread is really unbeatable (there is a bakery up the hill from our house and sometimes the dude brings me fresh croissants). But, the French is driving me crazy. I could fake my way thru Italian words and pronunciation. I le suck here.

Anyway...enjoy the pictures - that's what you're here for anyway. They are of our last day in Florence with our wonderful landlord and of our first views of the apartment and the French Riviera.

Miss you guys!
I am reading this post in the middle of an extraordinary dull corporations class. I had to fake an aggressive coughing spell to cover an involuntary outloud giggle at the 'le suck' comment. And then I got a little teary-eyed at the poor sad puppy not wanting you to leave.

These postings are a lifesaver during class. Keep them coming. JO
