Horrible early Ryanair from Charleroi to Bologna, huge queue to pick up the rental car, big struggle to figure out how to drive a car constructed in the 21st century, Italian traffic & drivers - and we (with Angie) finally made it to Modena. After a quick lunch and tour of Modena, we headed out to our digs - a little farm in the countryside, which is great. Decided to stick around there until dinner which was, wait for it,... 5 starters, 2 primi, 1 secondo and 3 deserts.... EACH!! Quite unbelievable. We made it to the second primo before giving up to disapproving head shakes. I really don't understand how one human is supposed to ingest to much food.
