Here's some music for all my Italian loving friends.
"Not all those who wander are lost."
"My favorite pastime is
letting time pass,
having the time,
taking my time,
wasting my time,
living out of time-
against the current."
-Francoise Sagan, Responses

Because honestly, no matter where
you end up and with whom, it always
ends up just the way it should be.
Your mistakes make you who you
are. You learn and grow with each
choice you make. Everything is
worth it. Say how you feel, always.
Be you, and be okay with it."

All was quiet in the center of town.
Here's a colorful little place next to where the bus stops.
The pavilion is 40 feet long, 22 feet wide, and 30 feet high
The pavilion features gold leaf etchings, a lacquer finish, and intricate decoration
The estimated value of the Pavilion is $1.5 to 2 million
The pavilion is crafted without nails or screws
There are no endangered woods or materials used in the pavilion
The gift of the pavilion was approved by Thailand's royal family therefore, it bears the Royal seal of the Thai Crown
The pavilion is only one of four located outside of Thailand. The others are in Germany, Norway, and Hawaii
The Thai Garden is connected to the central gardens by a 155-foot arched, ornamental bridge that spans Starkweather Creek

It has the feel of a neighborhood Parisian restaurant. We had a small private room in the back of the cafe.
After a long, leisure meal, plenty of coffee and three scrumptious desserts we were off to tour the Botanical Gardens.

Aria and Barb in front of the State Capitol Building
Although this time of year it might be more logical to call it the "Dane County Gardening Market," with starter plants just about outnumbering food products, it's the largest producer-only farmers’ market in the country. All items are produced locally by the vendor behind the table. No resale is allowed. The Farmers' Market will be held on the Capitol Square every Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., rain or shine, through November 7th.
