3 Days and Counting

I am missing Sweet Cheeks. I have not spoken to her since Thursday as I had to work the past several days. She has been in contact with Mr. Sister, however, and continues to be having a great time. She did need to withdraw more Euros the other day. We sent her with a credit card but many places are not accepting plastic.

Today the choir leaves the rustic village of Montecatini Terme and will travel through Ferrara and Mestre. They will visit the 12th century Duomo and see San Romano, one of Ferrara's medieval streets. Next, they will check into a hotel at Marocco di Magliano. After check in they will be participating in Mass at the Chiesa San Guiseppe in Mestre.

I was searching google images for Chiesa San Guiseppe and found a wonderful slide show of the installation of these huge, beautiful bells into their bell tower. If you are so inclined, please follow this link.
