Large bags of food
It's our last day in Italy. Tomorrow we drive home. I'm not sure when we will leave. In the early morning, or late afternoon. Nicole and I went to the store to stock up on all sorts of Italian food. I bought dry things like beans, spices and some noodles, as well as the cookies. And we also bought olive oil, vinegar and fresh peppers, lemons and red onions, garlic and ginger. We want to make our own ketchup this weekend when we get home. I put all our dirty laundry into big shopping bags. I took all our clean cloths and combined them in suitcases. So I've got 3 extra suitcases to fill with my food stuff. It should all fit into the car. This afternoon the owner of this farm will show Juergen and the kids how they make the wine. We are staying in the summer house on this large estate. The grandfather lives in the castle...really! It is all owned by the Martini family. I'm not sure if it's the same family as the drink company (Martini & Rossi ). But they own a giant estate that still grows grapes, wheat and olives. The kids and Juergen are at the pool. Its too bad the time has gone by so fast. I don't look forward to the drive, but it will be nice to be home. I am looking forward to seeing my garden. I bet it's grown!
