Marco (and Jodie)
I don't know if you will remember us, with so many people you see, but Patricia and I were on your Chianti Tour 2 (the only two) tour on August 28th.
Out of the 3 weeks we spent in Italy - in Florence, Siena, the hill towns of Tuscany, Pisa, and Cinque Terre - we still think that our best day was the day we spent with the two of you on our bike tour. The country was beautiful, and we especially enjoyed talking with the two of you about so many things - we keep talking about Vertine, and the Abbey, and Castello di Meleto...
We used many of the dinner recommendations that Jodie so carefully wrote down for us, and they were all great. Thank you for that, as well.
I only wish we had done more biking before we came over, but I was hit with an illness a month before we came that made it impossible. Thanks again, Marco, for being so patient with me in attempts to get used to a bicycle again after so long. Once I got used to it, it was great--- really gave these old legs a good workout. Now I think I should buy a good bike here instead of running on the roads.
Anyway, thanks so much - if you or Jodi are ever near Ithaca, New York, we will be glad to entertain you here.
Good luck, Jodie, in L.A. - I may start watching daytime TV again!!
