Look what we found in the Yucatan in Mexico! If you are ever in the Yucatan beach town of Playa del Carmen and want to eat a good pizza or a plate of pasta, this is the place.
Things change. Every year that we return to Salento, we learn of something new. The news is not always good. Marinella Cacciatore, the sister of our co-author Luciana, passed away suddenly of a heart attack in the Spring of this year. Marinella was a teacher of Latin and Greek at a nearby high school. Her high school auditorium has been renamed and rededicated to honor her memory. We will remember her as smart, friendly and dedicated to her students and learning.
