Ancona, Italy - August 2008

I am in Ancona, Italy... a lovely city on the Adriatic Sea coastline. I have never been here. I am attending a conference called DNA in Forensics. Lot of great researchers and interesting presentations. The nice perks are the room with a view of the sea and an extraordinary dinner at a local Trattoria with more seafood than I could eat (but I ate it all!!). In this picture I am having a local favorite: l'impiccato (the hangman). It is a bunch of fried seafood hanging upside-down from a metal stick. I was happy!
