La Festa del Cinghiale is not reviewed in a Zagat restaurant guide; indeed, its location is not retrievable on Google Maps. La Festa is held on the outskirts of the town of Greve; in layman's terms, in the middle of a forest, hidden from the tourist-centric trattorie of Firenze.

We arrived in Beijing and were quickly enveloped by the haze of fog-smog that the city is known for. This wasn't all bad though. The fog-smog made everything look good through our lenses and it also created an atmospheric, almost eerie vibe.

I can't sleep on planes -- at least, not in coach. So I work on my laptop throughout the flight and then, upon arrival, shut off the laptop and make the rest of the day about getting outdoor exercise and sunlight. I usually walk around all day, sightseeing, and don't stop moving till 7 p.m.
