The Spam — Not the Computer Variety — Museum

Somehow, somewhere, at sometime, my husband, Bob, heard about the Spam Museum in Austin, Minnesota. He came by this knowledge so long ago that he no longer remembers the exact source. He believes it was a 60 Minutes story, but I can find no evidence that Steve Kroft, Morley Safer, Lesley Stahl or Scott Pelley investigated this quirky tourist attraction.

On a recent trip to Florence, I had the pleasure of sitting down for a cappuccino with two American expat friends of mine. Both lead guided tours on the art and history of Florence and teach courses at the local universities. Our meeting spot, the coffee bar at the Palazzo Strozzi museum, turned out to be a popular place for the Florence museum elite. With only a bachelor’s degree in women’s studies, I felt a bit intimidated, but I never felt out of my element.
