Update: We Have Arrived (by Steve)

SIENA, February 8th, 2004

We are here!  The house is wonderful.  The Giallombardo-Ducci family is also great.  As usual, they have been very helpful.  Without their help, we could not be doing this.

Antonio says that without their help, it would be a 'bel casino'.

We'll be filing more stories soon.

Ed, "un bel casino" means a crazy scene, busy, chaotic, disorganized, bustling. Literally, a casino is a house of prostitution. Sorry for my late reply, only about 10 years late.
