Let in the Sun

We’ve arrived in Gravagna where we will stay for the summer. We’ve been some years away from this beautiful place, but we’re already settling into old routines and reacquainting ourselves with all the little peculiarities of this house in the mountains. The girls are ecstatic. This is kid paradise. I’m getting a studio space set up and working away at Zita 3 and I’m going to be painting a bit too when I get some more linseed oil. They dudes at the airport took my linseed oil. You know how it is.

I’m on a pretty slow connection here, but I’m hoping to figure that out this week (anyone have tips on getting internet in out of the way places?). I’m planning to post at least a weekly photo. And robot comics. I’ve got another one of those coming this week. So here we go! Let's raise a glass to Summer!

Linseed oil, very dangerous. I think you should put a reference to that in Zita 3. Isn't it about a prison break?

So glad you all got there safely! Don't ferget my banner!

Re connection, have you tried getting a local 3G dongle? No idea whether you can get a short-term contract or pay as you go on these in Italy (am assuming you are in Italy), but if you can, it would be your best bet for getting a reasonable internet connection as it can work even if you are a few miles from the nearest cellular transmitter.
Not returning to the US via London, by any chance...?
