We live on Long Island, New York. My husband, Nick, is a university professor (he teaches theology), and I am an Associate Dean. My son, Matteo, is 15 years old. We are all three quiet: we like to read and to hike; in his spare time Nick plays the trombone in the symphony orchestra, but don't worry-- he won't have the trombone with him! We are arriving in Frankfurt on that morning, and will be on our way to Italy, where I am from, to visit my family.
