La Laurea di Ben

Yesterday was the first occasion in nearly three years I could be seen wearing a tie!  The occasion, my good friend Ben presented his thesis and graduated at the University of Perugia.

In the photo Ben wearing an overly large crown created from laurel gathered at Pratale, their lovely home in Valdichiascio, is flanked by his parents, Etain and Martin.  The significance of the bananas I have yet to discover!
