I went to Italy for two conferences and a field trip, as well as some sightseeing. The first conference was in Rome. Then I had some time to sightsee in Venice and along the coast south of Venice. Then the second conference was in Perugia where the Umbria Jazz Festival was going on simultaneously. Then I went to Milan to meet up with the folks who went on the field trip to see some glaciers in the Alps. The first glacier was the Forni Glacier near Switzerland and the second was the Miage Glacier near Monte Bianco and France. I also took some pictures of graffiti along the way.
