Pressing Business in Italy

These pages will be blank for a couple weeks (more or less) because we have pressing business in Italy.


A friend of ours owns a small olive grove above Venti Miglia and, since her husband has died, she harvests and presses oil with as little paid help as possible. We are paid with her divine cooking.


I’ll be back in touch after we’re through shaking trees. Today, it’s over the Swiss Alps in our 20 year old Subaru.
