  • Flying to Ireland

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    On Thursday, I sat fidgeting through my Italian class because I couldn’t get my upcoming trip out of my head. I was returning to the Emerald Isle again this evening.

    On the train back into downtown, I gave my friends a call and told them to meet me back at the Duomo 30 minutes later. I showed up five minutes early and caught a showing of the azzurro Lambo Polizia car. A few years ago Lamborghini gave the Italian police force a pair of Gallardos. They’ve … More »
