Ravioli in the Morning

This morning, early (for me), we walked to Da Ezio, a trattoria inside of the city walls, to learn how to make ravioli. Corrie has been asking about work--she is interested in cooking--and yesterday she went to a variety of spots to see if she couldn't even just watch them prepare in the mornings. Luckily, she got a few responses, and I decided to tag along and ask, in my most polite Italian, if I could watch too. We are going back in an "oretta" to make homemade pasta. When we were leaving, the sweet signora at the trattoria said "Come back in an hour. No problem. Nothing is a problem here!" She doesn't realize that yesterday the television in the apartment under ours exploded, and a week ago we got caught in a hail storm in the mountains of Le Marche. We are catastrophies. But happy ones!
