Give my regards to Gianluca! I enjoyed hearing from him. It's amazing to me how people the world over speak English. I mean . . . after the earthquake in the remote mountains of Kashmir, people who appeared to be not at all rich were speaking English on camera. Given how hard learning English is, we are lucky to be native speakers, but it's embarassing that we are not better about learning other languages.

You should try caciocavallo cheese.

I heartily applaud the use of the video camera-- how'd you get the sound so clear? I'd be curious to hear what Steve Jenkins thinks of the Fontina. By the way, I believe that you may have the opportunity to SEE Steve Jenkins in DC one of these days. I did once--changed my life.

Now you've got me hooked on cheese and curling. Cheez curls! Anyway, my waistline thanks you.

Is it just me or does the US men's curling team look like the Wiggles? Perhaps it's the red shirts. And the short haircuts. I know to be a true Wiggle, you need an Aussie accent, not a "Fargo"-esque prairie accent.
Anyway, curling is great because it forms the true backdrop against all the death defying snow and ice action at the other venues. Jumpers, flippers, spinners and racers compete at breakneck speeds while the curlers quietly move their stones about on the pebbled ice.

Oh, and enough talk of Brian Boitano. If you're out partying and don't meet Alberto Tomba, you're simply not partying enough.

Gianluca!!! OMG I am glad that you met a new friend. When I got your email I totally didn't know what to expect. This is so great. I hope you shared about how GREAT of a photographer you are, How you are also interested in being a Film-maker and hopefully will come to study in USA as soon as the law degree is finished.

You are so talented. Glad that we are friends and I'm super excited that you met Dan over there. That's so cool. See I told you, You are so outgoing, very SMART, and extremely talented.

I will be over to see you after some of the 80 million people leave. Too crowded for me. Come back to Los Angeles! We need you in LA!!

I hope that you are getting some GREAT pictures! This would make a terrific documentary.

DAN thank you for being so cool!!! I'm so glad that you and Gianluca are having a blast. Good luck y'all!!!

&
Ciao

(He taught me some Italian, but I've forgotten most of it. I managed to remember Ciao.)
