Uses for dandelions

Most of the Italians we met wondered why we visited Sacile. It's a little town about an hour's train ride away from Venice, and by no means a tourist destination. It ended up on our itinerary so that we could sing there, and I'm so glad we spent a night, too.

We arrived in the afternoon, and wandered around the center of town for a little while, crossing the little river several times in the process. Eventually we ended up in a park and showed our appreciation for the flowers there.

We spent the night singing, amazing vegetable lasagna, and mimosas made with prosecco and blood orange juice. When we ventured out into the square the next morning, it was full of people selling and buying at the town market. We acquired some fantastic cheeses, wine, bread, and fruit, and sat down near the river for a quick picnic before heading to Venice. Sadly, I elected to leave my camera behind for these ventures, so you'll have to use your imagination -- it was heaven.

Sacile isn't necessarily the kind of place I would tell a tourist to visit, but I can say that I will always look back fondly on the 24 hours I spent there.
