iMac down, iMac down down. My iMac is now resting in the workshops of Apple's repair center pending some major fix up of its internet connection as well as the DVD drive. That's why I haven't updated my blog for this quite long a while.
But, life is still wonderful after all. My tickets for the workshop and dinners of the Cheese Festival in Bra of Italy arrived just in time to cheer me up. Yep, in about ten days I'll be in Italy to take part in this biennial 'cheesy' event organized by the Slow Food Organization. In it, I'll take a class in what I consider the highlight of the whole function: a workshop on Parmigiano Reggiano -- vertical testing of the 5 vintages of the King of Cheese. Man, just the sound of it give me an ecstatic fit!
But of course that won't be all for my gusto! For next I will conquer Barcelona. Then I'll try to pull off my best Drunken Master show to date in the La Rioja Wine Festival in Logrono (lets hope the Riojas can make my kung fu fighting smokin' and stompin'). Pay a visit to Bodegas Marques de Marietta, one of the most estimable bodegas in the region. The aim is utterly fundamental: drink like a fish no matter what. Then Bilbao, then San Sebastian. And finally, to end my gastronomic trip with a bang: London, the so-called "the world's best place to eat."
