Bella Modena

Modena is a very, very special place...I lived there from 2002-2003 and in 2009. When I return for a visit I feel like "The Mayor". It's good to be recognized and treated well. OK enough navel was a beautiful Fall day, snuck in two lunches, sat a true 'communal' table at Trattoria Aldina with a priest, an elderly Japanese woman eating by herself, and two locals. Fantastico.
