David and Beverley ... thanks again for providing such a terrific base for our short exploration of the region ... in hindsight we truly regretted cutting it so short. Provence was wonderful as well ... but also too short. Just arrived in Italia ... and on it goes ... quite the adventure. regards, Ian Canada
