the dinner that made me cry (and then some)

Last week I was on tour in northern Italy with my class/group/whatever and I think the best best part of it is when we all had dinner together at this restaurant that our bus driver Carlo likes. We had a pre-dinner thing which was pizza bianca. Then we had this tube-y pasta thing that I can't remember the name of. Then a meat plate with some salad. Then panna cotta. The food was all good, but I don't think it was the best meal I had on tour (those pictures will come soon). But I still liked it the best because I was super happy to have dinner with my pals. Aww

most of the group and Carlo

This is the best fried food I have ever had EVER. I got it in Siena and it's this rice pastey stuff on the inside and fried with orangey batter and sugar. It's called fritella something. I don't know, it was so so delicious and amazing and great etc etc.

Panna cotta from Norcia

PS: Mark you calendars because April 1st is the first (or what I'm guessing is the first) Cenci eating contest between me, Kellie, Dan, and Alex.
