Although I am having a wonderful time in Bari hanging out with family and friends, I’m not used to this whole not working thing. I want to be learning… but I’m not, well at least not about cooking. In Parma I was a chef and in Bari I am assisting a family friend in the clothing distribution business. It is very interesting how different opportunities present themselves. Although there may be a great opportunity to get into retail distribution from America I know that after being apart from a stove and knives for two weeks I can’t wait to get back in the kitchen. One thing I am looking forward to is going up in the mountains with a group of guys ranging in age. Its kind of like the American version of a camping trip…except we are going to catch an animal and cook it up “braceria” style 🙂
The thing I am looking most forward to though is the arrival of my wife and daughter…4 more days…I can do it!
