The Cheese Sisters
On our way to Asiago one Saturday we saw
lots of farms that offered sale of formaggio (cheese). Most
them were up long gravel roads and I didn't care to take our little
Fiat Punto across these roads. Soon however we came to a
that had parking and where one could walk up to the farm house.
And it was mobbed. So we figured the cheese must be
good. 24 Euros later we had a nice bag of cheese which has
us about 3 weeks. We still have about a pound of the hard
left to be grated. The "cheese sisters" were incredilble
entertainers and they really sold a lot of cheese.

Taken from a web page about the castle: "Pergine Castle is a majestic
13th century castle surrounded by robust walls, situated on a hill
dominating the Alta Valsugana Valley. For a long time it was the
property of the dukes of Austria and then belonged to Emperor
Massimiliano I. Today the property of the Swiss Oss family, the
castle functions as hotel, restaurant and museum."

thing about boy children in Italy is that they are treated like Lords -
by their grandmothers and by everyone that comes in contact with them.
We were seated in a restaurant in the nearby ski town of
when a family sat down at the next table. Almost before
that table had ordered anything a large plate of rigatoni came out for
the boy. Then a bib and a special table attached seat in back
which was placed a chair should the table seat fall. None of
made the boy any too happy.
