My husband and I are signed up for the June4-17 trip and would love to hear from Larry Arends when he and his wife, Sally, return. By the way, we are former residents of Wilmette, Il. who retired to Austin, Texas last year.

To help prepare for Rome, Florence, and Venice, the following link is an informative 57 minute talk by Gene Openshaw titled: "Michelango's Italy." He is a co-author with Rick Steves: Europe 101. Just ignore the Rick Steves' sales push and enjoy the biographical info plus wonderful pictures of Michelangelo's art and his origins. Even Venice is included since MIchelangelo vacationed there.
