First Albuquerque visitor to Ascoli Piceno

Jack’s visit

We have lived in Ascoli Piceno since September of 2006 and about half of our family has been here to experience the city we call ‘home’. Many of them had no choice since they had never been to Italy before and once we picked them up at the airport in Roma I was the one who was driving. Driver’s prerogative prevails.

Last week-end we had our first visit from a friend from Albuquerque to come and visit us here in Ascoli Piceno. Jack was in Valerie’s conversational Italian “il gruppo” before we made the move across the pond and he met us in town to see a bit of this fascinating town as well as to catch up on events since we left Albuquerque. After lunch we drove him to some of the hill towns in the Piceno area before we returned him to his lodgings in Grottammare.

Jack was pleased to know he was the first friend who has visited us here in Ascoli Piceno from the US and we hope he was only the first of many more to come.
