My plans are being finalized now. My airline tickets are purchased; my room for the first week is reserved; and my registration for Sacra Ligturgia Milano is completed and paid for.
I will be leaving Charleston Friday, 2 June, and arriving in Milan, Italy Saturday morning, 3 June. That will give me a few days to see the sights and prepare for the Conference, which is 6 - 9 June.
I also have a seat at Teatro alla Scala for the Saturday, 3 June, performance of Mozart's "Don Giovanni":
I think this is the box I will be seated in:
And this will be the view from the box:
After the conference, I'll fly up to London for a few days, then go by train to Manchester (Broadbottom) to visit my friends, the Wenner's, possibly stopping in Oxford. I'll be returning to Charleston 20 June.
I will be blogging as often as I can, just like last year. Stay tuned!
