Ravenna Greetings

A few weeks ago I spent an afternoon in Ravenna, Italy. I’ve wanted to see the Byzantine mosaics ever since I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Art History. As I made my way through the city I noticed this colorful gentleman, standing near the city center, greeting everyone who passed by. His warm welcome along with delicious handmade pasta, and stunning mosaics made for a very special day.
