Return visit to Italy, November 2022

We're not based in Europe anymore, and we've struggled through the covid-19 lockdowns like everyone else, so we haven't set foot in Italy since February 2019. We've been making up for lost time with mad sightseeing, but at the end of the month we'll be grandly reuniting with Melvin and Choupette, the Remarkable Cats, O Frabjous Day.
