trying new things

As a photo I failed to take myself has recently come into my possession, I want to add one final (hopefully) Italy post.  Our last day in Italy was spent touring the beautiful countryside outside of Turin, through vineyards and endless grapevine-filled hillsides.  We were fortunate to have beautiful weather and the company couldn't have been nicer (well, unless Kim and Mark had stayed in Italy just a bit longer...).  We enjoyed a marvelous lunch at a restaurant in a village whose name escapes me, eating local fare prepared especially for us.  One of the courses was something a bit different, for most of us I would guess.  When it arrived, my first thought was "oh, we are doing fondue!"  Wrong...
