It was quite the week last week: Las Vegas and Los Angeles for the Mayweather and Pacquiao media days, and then on to Rome, Perugia and Paciano in Italy before coming home. For the best part of a week, I was pretty much in a different hotel room in a different town every night, but it was all for good reasons. There was the nerve-wracking enjoyment of hosting the media day shows, of course, but my flying visit to Italy was also special: I was this year's winner, National and International Sections, in the 'Stories on Umbria' International Journalism Awards 2015, for my Washington Post Magazine article on Paciano and olive oil. It was an enormous honor, and I am extremely grateful to those who gave me the award and who treated me so very nicely during my time in Umbria last week.
